Lizarazo Clara, Visiting Researcher

I am interested environmental conservation, biodiversity in rural ecosystems and development of sustainable cropping systems. I am currently studying how to implement ecological compensation actions at the citizen level. My work on ecological compensation encompasses the use of: participatory methods, choice modelling, ecological indicators, and land-cover mapping.

I am a crop scientist currently doing postdoctoral research on ecological compensation (at the University of Jyväskylä) and on improving caraway (at the University of Helsinki).

Human activities have a considerable impact on natural resources that often causes habitat loss and ecosystem degradation. I study landscape attributes in urban and rural areas, in parallel to citizen's choices and actions as a cornerstone to achieve effective ecological compensation.
