Florence Pendrill

Doctoral Student at Chalmers, Space, Earth and Environment, Physical Resource Theory, Physical Resource Theory 2

Florence Pendrill’s research explores the drivers of tropical deforestation and land use change. She started her PhD studies in August 2015 and will initially work in a project on ”Greenhouse gas emissions and biodiversity loss from land use change embodied in international trade of agricultural commodities – a pan-tropical assessment”. The project aims at finding spatially explicit ways to improve estimates of how much different agricultural commodities (e.g. soy, palm oil, beef and cocoa) drive tropical deforestation, and also to further examine the impact this land use change has on biodiversity and greenhouse gas emissions.
