Safeguard is happy to welcome Florence Damiens to the project team! Florence is a social science postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Ecology, SLU University

Florence holds a Master’s degree in Economics and Public Policy from The Paris Institute of Political Studies (Sciences Po) and École Polytechnique. She worked with various stakeholders in the fields of environment and biodiversity conservation in Australia, France, the Middle-East and Sweden. Her research interests are in bridging political sciences and biodiversity conservation to better understand how politics affect biocultural diversity and sustainability. She puts her main focus on how different political discourses and modes of governance name, govern and affect biocultural diversity. 

During her PostDoc research at Safeguard, she will combine her knowledge in conservation social sciences, political sciences and political ecology to investigate the role that discursive dynamics may play in keeping pollinator-unfriendly practices in place. In parallel, Florence is finishing her PhD on the politics of biodiversity offsetting, comparing Australia and France.

We’re excited to see where Florence takes her science next!
