I am an ecologist with a research focus in conservation in the face of human-driven land use change. In particular, I am interested in biodiversity change, agroecology, landscape ecology, conservation policy and the potential of abandoned agricultural land for biodiversity conservation.
Understanding how global change drivers, such as land intensification and abandonment, are influencing ecosystems around the world is vital for facilitating international policy regulations to inform conservation measures and safeguard ecosystem functionality.
I welcome future collaborations and am happy to answer questions – feel free to get in touch at gndaskalova (at) gmail.com.
I am also passionate about quantitative skills, in particular the development of coding and R skills among people from diverse backgrounds and career stages (check out Coding Club for more information). I firmly believe in fostering a supportive and inclusive working environment, in diversity and equality in science and life, and in creating a positive feedback of knowledge gain and transfer.
