I am a postdoc at the Free University of Brussels (VUB), on a fellowship from the Flemish Research Foundation (FWO). I research the evolving practice of conservation through the study of rewilding. I am interested in human-nature-animal relations in general and find rewilding to be a good lense for thinking about how these are evolving today. I am particularly interested in ways to bridge the nature/culture divide, as I don’t think it has to be a divide at all. In policy terms, this means that I am looking for practices that conserve both nature and culture, together.
