Ph.D. Student, McGill University

I am a Ph.D. student working on participatory scenarios development and exploration for Canadian working landscapes, studying the social learning effects and sustainability outcomes of this process. I hold a Master's degree in sustainability science, studying ecosystem service dynamics of an agroforestry watershed in the Philippines from an intergenerational perspective. For my undergraduate degree in agricultural sciences, I explored the social-ecological resilience of a silvopastoral community using the Resilience Alliance's evaluation framework.

I have also been involved in local and international research projects on piloting integrated models of school-plus-home gardens in the Philippines; developing new ASEAN policy guidelines for climate-smart-agriculture; scanning for restoration and conservation solutions for bioproduction landscapes in Asia; and developing frameworks for mobilizing stakeholders for conservation of critical natural landscapes among many others.

Key research Interests: participatory, ecosystem services, agroforestry, sustainability science, scenarios
