Currently a large part of my research addresses ecological data shortfalls and the socio-political barriers and opportunities for management and conservation of a silvopastoral system in central Chile (espinal). I try to develop easy-to-implement tools and approaches to develop local interest and capacity to restore this habitat, within a conceptual framework of resilience of ecosystem services and agricultural production. I also am involved in starting a project to restore habitats, reintroduce species and promote traditional livelihoods in the Po Delta, Italy. Other research covers rewilding, human- animal interactions, industrial design solutions to human-wildlife conflicts, and animal behaviour.
