André Braga Junqueira


(Ph.D. in Production Ecology and Resource Conservation, 2015, Wageningen University) is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow of the LICCI team at ICTA-UAB. André has experience with interdisciplinary research in ethnoecology, traditional resource management systems, ecology of agroecosystems, and historical ecology. During his Ph.D., he focused on the use of anthropogenic soils by riverine populations in Brazilian Amazon, aiming to understand how these soils are perceived and incorporated into local livelihoods. His current research at LICCI focuses on understanding the complementarities between TEK and scientific knowledge on climate change, through analysing patterns and drivers of the correspondence between these bodies of knowledge across multiple scales.
