Matilda Palm

Assistant Professor at Chalmers, Space, Earth and Environment, Physical Resource Theory

Matilda’s research focuses on the intersection between land use, agriculture, climate and conservation throughout the tropics. She is interested in human transformation of the landscape and the consequences for the climate, biodiversity and other ecosystem services. She has assessed this from a variety of directions. Her background as a physical geographer (PhD) has given her a natural science approach based on experimental design, empirical data collection and analysis. After retrieving her PhD, covering land use and climate change policy with a focus on forest based options in a local context, she has actively been searching for multidisciplinary research environments where additional qualitative methods and approaches has been added to her toolbox.
