Short CV

Claudia Christensen García is working on the ERC Consolidator Grant RECODYN, under the supervision of Daniel Montoya. She recently completed her MSc in Ecosystem Services at the Technical University of Dresden, Germany. Her focus area was forestry and her thesis was about Picea abies stands with Fagus sylvatica understories; specifically, she carried out a survey of forest visitors to see how visibility affects aesthetic preferences, and how this relates to forest management. Previous to her MSc, she spent six years living in Oregon, USA where she worked primarily as an environmental educator with a strong focus on equity. Her work experiences range from leading backpacking trips based from an off-the-grid community in an old growth forest, to running an advisory council for the Portland Brownfield Program. She developed curriculum on a range of topics including lichens, watersheds, and school gardens. Additionally, she has enjoyed volunteering and participating in programs such as the European Natural Forest School, Portland´s Neighborhood Tree Stewards, Wilderness First Responder (via NOLS), as well as community science projects (amphibian surveys, salmon surveys, and swift counts). These experiences followed her BA from Boston College in Political Science (Environmental Studies, Studio Art minors) where her interest in environmental justice and the intersection of race and ecology was sparked. She is an avid birder and in her free time enjoys art, journaling, and hiking.
