I am a Core Member of the P2P Lab. I am an environmental engineer (BSc) holding an MSc in nautical and marine science and a certificate of pedagogy and educational proficiency. I have an expertise in participatory design for nature conservation and integrated coastal zone management. Moreover, I have a 20 years experience of active involvement in international civil movements, focusing on agrarian grassroots, indigenous populations, and the commons. I also have a strong background in non-formal education. I have worked as a scientific assistant in three European projects in the areas of marine conservation and community-based management as well as in the area of digital commons. I am pursuing a PhD at Tallinn University of Technology on the convergence of convivial technologies, commons and non-formal education and I am involved in the Phygital project.
