Postdoctoral Research Associate

Dr Danilo Urzedo was a Postdoctoral Research Associate on the Smart Forests project in the Department of Sociology at the University of Cambridge from 2021-22. Originally from Brazil, Danilo is an environmental geographer drawing on multiple perspectives of political ecology and environmental justice to investigate the interplay between tropical forest conservation and rural development. He is particularly concerned with understanding how emerging digital practices are transforming community participation to stop deforestation and upscale forest restoration actions. Danilo worked with Indigenous and rural communities to establish the Xingu Seed Network, engaging seed collectors in supplying diverse native seeds for landscape restoration in the Brazilian Amazon.
