Dr. Angelina Sanderson Bellamy has recently joined the Sustainable
Places Research Institute as a Research Associate. Angelina is originally
from Southern California and completed her undergraduate degree
in Human Biology with a focus on Sustainable Development and the Environment
at Stanford University, USA. She then worked at the International
Geosphere Biosphere Program in Stockholm, Sweden before she began her PhD at
Stockholm University in Systems Ecology. Her PhD thesis focused on management
practices in coffee and banana production systems in Costa Rica, with an aim to
identify production systems that reduce the environmental impact of export crop
production. After completing her PhD, Angelina was awarded a 3 year fellowship
from the Swedish Research Council to work jointly with Stanford’s Wood’s
Institute for the Environment and the Stockholm Resilience Centre on land use
change and the forest transition in Costa Rica. Angelina’s areas of
expertise encompass food production systems and land use/land cover changes,
using a social-ecological perspective. She investigates the social drivers,
particularly governance and support structures, of environmental change and the
impact of land management on the delivery of ecosystem services.
Angelina will be continuing her research in Costa Rica while taking part in both the Food, Land and Security Research Programme and the Sustainable Rural-Urban Communities Research Programme as part of the Sustainable Places Research Institute.
