Integrated Ecological and Socio-Economic Modelling of Biodiverse Plantings for Carbon Sequestration
Nooshin was a PhD student in RMIT University, Melbourne. her thesis title was Integrated Ecological and Socio-Economic Modelling of Biodiverse Plantings for Carbon Sequestration. She explored the socio-cultural drivers of private landholders who participate in biodiverse carbon plantings in their properties.
Also, Nooshin is interested in finding out additional social and environmental values of carbon plantings which influence landholders' decision to participate, such as community development, climate change resilience and biodiversity enhancement.
Her research interests include integration of socio-ecological systems, building resilience in rural areas, Bayesian Belief Networks (BBNs), exploring the social roots of ecological issues and integration of markets for ecosystem services.
