Senior Technical Officer

As Senior Technical Officer I provide technical, organizational and administrative support to the development and implementation of projects within the Deltas and Coasts Programme.

I have a background in conservation biology and a huge passion for wildlife conservation through grassroots community engagement. I worked in Southeast Asia for over 5 years, developing and implementing projects for forest and mangrove conservation by linking environment protection with sustainable economic development. My research activity in Russia, Thailand and Myanmar brought me to investigate the impact of human activities on wetlands and forest ecosystem to identify harmonizing solutions in collaboration with local communities and governments.

I am proud to be part of Wetlands International because I can contribute to the conservation of some of the most productive and biodiverse ecosystems on earth by supporting projects which connect science with practice.
