Maria J Santos
Assistant Professor in Environmental Sciences, Utrecht University.
My research combines field methods, GIS, remote sensing, statistical modeling, historical archival research, and conservation biology, history, and planning. I focus on four research areas:
* Assessing interaction and feedback mechanisms of social-ecological systems in space and time
* Identifying global change drivers through conservation histories and relate them to changes and fluxes in species and ecosystems, land use policy, and environmental governance
* Investigating how land use and climate changes affect spatial and temporal dynamics of species and habitat at multiple scales
* Use of state of the art remote sensing, GIS and quantitative analysis to answer interdisciplinary research questions
