Elsa is a PhD student working with Professor Eric Lambin. Her research is currently focused on forest
transitions and issues of sustainable land and natural resource use in Cameroon
from a landscape scale perspective. A particular focus of her work is aimed at
understanding the role of globalization and agricultural expansion on land use
changes in Central Africa. She employs an integrative methods approach that
combines techniques including remote sensing, GIS, ecology, economics and modeling.
My research interests include studying the impacts of climate change on water quality and water quantity at a regional scale.
