After 3 years of working with small coffee farmers in Costa Rica, Sebastian came to understand the importance of accelerating the shift we need to make towards more sustainable food systems. His research at UVM focuses on modelling the impact of more sustainable farming practices on farm and landscape productive and ecological functions and farmers' livelihoods. He is also interested in the development of environmental monitoring and decision support systems using geoinformation technologies.
