About Maria

I am a rangeland and human ecologist with expertise in rangeland assessment, monitoring, collaborative and community-based management, local/indigenous knowledge, and participatory research. I coordinate transdisciplinary teams that span physical, biological and social sciences and non-scientist participants to solve real-word problems in the western US, Mongolia and Spain.
