In our globalized planet, distances and boundaries are increasingly irrelevant; mobility and trade facilitate distant connections that support a growing flow of goods and services around the globe; and local natural resources become global commodities that reach people in different parts of the world. Understanding and mapping these global interactions (i.e., telecouplings) is essential to improve the way natural resources are managed locally. For instance, managing a globally traded resource like the tuna stocks of the South Pacific impacts both local fishers, but also tuna processors in other locations, local retailers at consumption points, and people who receive its nutritional benefits in other parts of the world. Understanding and mapping these human-nature interactions across space and time is essential to inform the management of social-ecological systems like fisheries. So far, mapping these interactions uses “traditional" static mapping methods which are a necessary first step, but still rather limited, particularly when such information needs to be used for decision-making. Little research has been done on dynamically representing spatio-temporal dynamics of social-ecological systems in space and time.
Within this PhD you will develop your own research towards designing novel approaches to model and map social-ecological system flows with a special focus on benefits that flow between marine and urban social-ecological systems. You will work with selected case studies related to fisheries social-ecological systems and/or climate regulation by coastal habitats.
Part of your time (< 10 %) will be devoted to teach, assist and supervise MSc students.
A recognized level of mastery of English language (C1) is required. UT sets specific standards for the English competency of the teaching staff. UT offers training to improve English competency.
