Zuzana Harmáčková is a postdoctoral researcher within the GRAID programme, working on comparative analysis of resilience indicators among diverse social-ecological case studies, including small-scale fisheries, drylands and urban areas. Her research aims to identify which traits of social-ecological systems explain resilience, transformation or loss of resilience.
Prior to joining the SRC, Zuzana worked as a PhD student at CzechGlobe – Global Change Research Institute, Czech Academy of Sciences. In her PhD thesis Assessing ecosystem services and the alternatives of their future development in UNESCO Biosphere Reserves, she developed participatory scenarios for selected UNESCO Biosphere Reserves in the Czech Republic, and modelled potential trade-offs between ecosystem services. She defended her thesis in 2016.
Zuzana’s research interests include resilience indicators, exploratory scenarios and ecosystem services modelling (InVEST, ARIES). She has been involved in the IPBES Europe and Central Asia regional assessment and Ecosystem Services Partnership.
