Wiebren J. Boonstra

In 2000 I graduated for my MSc in Development Studies at Wageningen University in the Netherlands. In 2016 I obtained a PhD in Rural Sociology also from Wageningen University. Since then I have been working as a researcher at the Swedish University for Agricultural Sciences in Uppsala, and as associate Professor at the Stockholm Resilience Centre at Stockholm University. I study how primary resource users, such as farmers and fishers, respond to social and ecological changes. Currently I am researcher at the department of Geosciences, at Uppsala University.
