Biography

Dr. Marta Berbés-Blázquez is an interdisciplinary scholar whose work explores change in social-ecological systems influenced by resilience thinking and political ecology. Her doctoral work (York University, Canada) examined the interplay between ecosystem services and human well-being in resource-dependent communities in Costa Rica. As a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Waterloo (Canada) Marta explored vulnerability to climate change in coastal communities in the Caribbean and Eastern Canada.
