Zuzana Burivalova – principal investigator
Tatiana Maeda – post-masters research intern
I am a Brazilian biologist with a master’s degree in Environmental Conservation from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I am passionate about tropical ecosystems and, aiming to support their conservation, I have developed forest ecology and restoration research, and worked with environmental consulting and wildlife-sighting ecotourism. I am particularly interested in conservation strategies that protect biodiversity while meeting the needs of local communicate and indigenous people.
