I work as an Associate Professor  at the Environmental Economics and Natural Resources group at Wageningen University in the Netherlands. I am also affiliated with the Centre for Ecological and Evolutionary Synthesis (CEES) at the University of Oslo in Norway.  I work on coupled social-ecological systems, looking on particular at how dynamics in the natural system, the socioeconomic system and institutions governing those resources influence each other. My main field of scientific interest includes  social complexity in resource management, in particular the evolution of social norms and cooperation, but also the governance of marine ecosystems.
