Danilo Ignacio de Urzedo

PhD candidate, University of Sydney

I am an environmental geographer who researches the interplay between land-use change and political economy, and the associated consequences for community livelihoods and rural development. I bridge the natural and social sciences, having previously worked as a forester with indigenous and rural communities in the Brazilian Amazon before undertaking a PhD in Human Geography about the governance of landscape restoration.
