My research explores the complex and evolving coupled human-ecosystems governance to deliver practical and straightforward solutions to current sustainability problems like water scarcity and food, waste management, energy, and environmental pollution. My main goal is to develop analytical frameworks for understanding the causes and effects of sustainable national development through a better understanding and integration of local systems. Natural resources, climate characterize these, infrastructure needs engineering, and social and political factors that influence decision-making at the public policy level, linking science, technology, society, and education.  Through qualitative and quantitative methods, I attempt to understand if and how various governance techniques, such as regulations and planning processes, can be led to the effective adaptation to changing social and ecological circumstances. My current work examines the governance of environmental challenges associated with technological changes in ecosystem services use and management. My field of research is Sustainability Science.
