Andrea Downing is a researcher in the Planetary Boundaries Research Network, working on the Systematic Links and Interactions of the Planetary boundaries (SLIP) project

Profile summary

  • Andrea holds a PhD in Environmental Sciences from Wageningen University (Netherlands)
  • Her interests include socio-ecological systems, system dynamics, complex systems and modelling
  • She maps and models societal and environmental players that determine the 'safe and just operating space' of earth
    sub-systems

Andrea's main research theme is to investigate the dynamics that underlie planetary boundary processes. For this she will investigate the interactions between different environmental processes that underlie the planetary boundaries as well as the feedbacks between society and the environment.

Using specific case studies she will map and model the societal and environmental players that support given sets of ecosystem services, thus determining the 'safe and just operating space' of earth sub-systems. This re-scaling of the planetary boundaries concept will serve as a foundation for cross-scale analyses and for a methodology for the application of the PB concept in policy-making.

Andrea holds a PhD in Environmental Sciences from Wageningen University (Netherlands), she has a background in ecological modelling, theoretical ecology and time series analysis. Her interests include socio-ecological systems, system dynamics, complex systems and modelling.
