André Braga Junqueira


I am an ecologist and postdoctoral researcher at ICTA-UAB. I hold a PhD in Production Ecology and Resource Conservation (Wageningen University, The Netherlands, 2015), an MSc. in Biological Sciences - Botany (National Institute for Amazonian Research, Brazil, 2008) and a BSc. in Biological Sciences (University of São Paulo, Brazil, 2005).

I am broadly interested in interdisciplinary research on the fields of ethnoecology, traditional resource management systems, ecology of agroecosystems, and historical ecology. During my Ph.D., I focused on the use of anthropogenic soils by riverine populations in Brazilian Amazon, aiming to understand how these soils are perceived and incorporated into local livelihoods. My current research at the LICCI Project focuses on understanding the complementarities between traditional ecological knowledge and scientific knowledge on climate change, through analysing patterns and drivers of the correspondence between these bodies of knowledge across multiple scales.
