Work experience

Since the PhD study I have been working on issues of conservation and sustainable use of natural renewable resources. My research interest in particular focuses on common-pool resources governance which represents one of the main academic foundations for the social-ecological resilience thinking. Collaborating with my colleagues at NDHU and in Taiwan, I conduct research on social-ecological system resilience since 2012.
