Profile summary

  • Social-ecological systems
  • Co-evolving structures of civilized environments
  • Equation-based modelling
  • Venice & Venetian lagoons

Bridging the intermediate space between social and ecological systems, local and global scales, fast and slow processes remains one of the central and urgent needs for global sustainability. Laura´s work is driven by the motivation to unveil, synthesize and experiment with typical systemic patterns. She employs mathematical models that are grounded from the vivid stories of fishermen and artisans in Baja California, Kenya, and Venice.

Prior to joining the SRC, Laura worked on the safeguarding of Venice and its lagoon, supervised by James Watson (SRC) and Sonia Silvestri (Duke University). The synthesis of knowledge in Venice facilitated collaboration between segmented groups with similar interest: re-animating Venice as living with water city. Laura´s approach is equipped with transdisciplinary training in international business, ethnological studies, and environmental sciences. Laura graduated with distinction with an MSc in Sustainable Development-Environmental Sciences from Graz University and Università Ca´Foscari. She is a former intern with WWF International, and was located in the Heart of Borneo.

Supervision: I am happy to co-supervise students. Please get in contact indicating which part of my work you are interested in.
