Bio


I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Natural Capital Project and the Daily Lab, Biology. My research focuses on the importance of urban nature for human well-being and the spatial allocation of ecosystem services. My main focus is on the importance of urban ecosystems for recreation, physical activity, and the spatial distribution of urban biodiversity. I help develop spatial ecosystem service models for the InVEST model suite.
