I am a PhD student, jointly based at the Stockholm Resilience Centre (Stockholm University) and the Beijer Institute of Ecological Economics (Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences). My PhD research project is aimed at better understanding the causal mechanisms through which rural out-migration and remittances can affect local land use and agricultural activities, in countries that are currently undergoing structural economic transformations. In particular, his research is focused on identifying the conditions under which these rural-urban flows can lead to tree cover increase, consistent with the 'forest transition' theory. Methodologically, I am interested in the interplay between in-depth place-based studies, systematic case-based meta-studies, and stylized dynamic modeling, to advance theory development in land system science.
