A short presentation of yourself: 
As an anthropologist, I am particularly interested in socio-economic issues of the people living inside protected areas/ parks/ reserves in the Eastern Europe, the changes occurring in the environment and environmental policy making , with a focus on post-socialist transformations and international institutions. I am currently doing post-doctoral research (Romanian Academy’s Anthropological Institute) in the former Danube flood plains, looking at local adaptations and strategies regarding flood protection and socio-economic assessment of the transformed environment . I am also interested in how local communities could be involved in sustainable development projects proposed by the international institutions.
