Bowy den Braber
I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Department of Geosciences and Natural Resource Management, University of Copenhagen in Denmark.
I have been trained as an animal ecologist, but I have gradually shifted my research interest to the intersection of environment and human wellbeing. My work is mostly quantitative and I use methods from a wide variety of disciplines including econometrics, geo-information, remote sensing, and machine learning.
My postdoctoral work will uncover the heterogeneous impacts of forest loss on people’s dietary quality in low-income countries as the bulk of existing work on assessing impacts of tree cover on diets has focused on average impacts.
