Dr. Fernanda Rojas Marchini

Fernanda Rojas Marchini has a PhD in Geography from the University of British Columbia. Her research addresses the political ecology of market-based conservation in Chile and Latin America, with attention to the legal geography of extractivism. Working at the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso, Fernanda is conducting a research project to examine the rise of the biodiversity offset market in the high Andean wetlands of Chilean Altiplano. Her project is part of the larger research initiative Andespeat, which produces scientific research aimed at expanding the protection of these fragile ecosystems in light of the energy transition.
