I nurtured a deep interest in the study of ecology and socio-ecological systems through my Master’s degree in Ecology and Natural Resource Management from Utrecht University in the Netherlands. During this time, I researched a wide variety of topics; from processes of microbial community assembly, to regenerative agriculture and agricultural policy effects on farmer’s land management. Afterwards, driven by my passion for interdisciplinary research, I did a second Master’s degree in Political Ecology, Degrowth and Environmental Justice from the Autonomous University of Barcelona, Spain. Since then, my research interest is motivated on understanding how the political-economic landscape influence and shapes socio-economic configurations, with special emphasis on the role of power dynamics.
For my doctoral research, I am using an interdisciplinary approach to the analysis of global network of oil (energy) flows in the socio-economic system. I am strongly and persistently interested in transformative research grounded in the understanding of complexity and exploring potential leverage points that can inform degrowth/post-growth transitions. The i-CONN network offers a unique opportunity to learn from each other while working for a better future for which interdisciplinary approaches are more needed than ever.
Besides my academic interests, I enjoy hiking, food, coffee and music. I’m interested in pedagogy and I love to discuss ideas about mostly everything.
Christian Kerschner, Ivo Ponocny, Sabine Sedlacek, Mario Diaz Munozi-CONN: Interdisciplinary connectivity: Understanding and managing complex systems using connectivity
The goal of this ITN is to train a new cohort of researchers specialized in the developing field of connectivity science who will be capable of developing interdisciplinary approaches to connectivity across a range of disciplines and real-life applications in the next five to ten years. Our overarching aim is to overcome barriers to progress in using connectivity science to understand and manage complex systems by learning from transdisciplinary perspectives to produce new insights into the behavior of complex systems across diverse disciplines (Astrophysics, Computer Science, Ecology, Geomorphology, Hydrology, Neuroscience, Systems Biology, and Social Science) and synthesize them into a common set of theories and approaches.
