Organizing Dialogue, Experience and Knowledge for Complex Problem-Solving

Laura Alayon

I am a creative and interdisciplinary professional looking for better ways to integrate my academic skills with my practical experience. As a professional in Ecology I am able to understand the structure and dynamic of ecosystems and contribute to solving and understanding environmental issues. As a MSc in Resource Economics I focus my work on the study of the relationships between environmental policies and local realities in the use and management of natural resources. I focus on natural and socioeconomic incentives to make these relationships more efficient and sustainable. I have participated in many research projects with local communities that depend on extracting natural resources to make a living. The challenge has been to forecast how resources management will perform and find incentives for designing political and methodological proposals that contribute to real solutions in specific contexts.
