Research interests

My research focuses on the relationship between nature and human well-being, with a particular interest in hydrologic services and urban ecosystems. I have developed several ecosystem services models that support management decisions, in particular in the face of climate uncertainty. I conduct natural capital assessments in partnership with NGOs and public and private actors around the world, most recently in Latin America and South East Asia.

Since 2017, I lead the Livable Cities program at the Natural Capital Project, aiming to understand and elevate the role of nature in urban environments. The Natural Capital Project is a partnership between research institutions and environmental NGOs (WWF and The Nature Conservancy), with a global hub at Stanford University.
