I am a social and environmental scientist from Brazil with more than 10 years of experience in the Brazilian Amazon. My focus of research is on policies and measures to reduce deforestation and forest degradation; behavior change; institutional bricolage; indigenous knowledge and practices; local inclusion; rural politics; discourses; governmentality and benefit-sharing.
