Tommaso Trinchetti is a PhD student. He is currently involved in the GRANULAR project, which focuses on developing new data and indicators to characterize the diversity of rural areas in support of policies.
During his studies at the University of Pisa, he obtained a bachelor’s degree in peace sciences and a bachelor’s degree in natural and environmental sciences. During that time, he had the opportunity to study rural communities in India and indigenous communities in Colombia. He also had experience in international cooperation in Mexico and Peru. In Italy, he worked for four years in reception centres for asylum seekers.
For his master’s degree in environmental sciences, he did a thesis on mapping ecosystem services for spatial planning. Later, he further explored this topic in a regional research project focusing on mountain areas. Currently, his main research interest is the development of indicators to map and assess ecosystem services at territorial level. In a broader sense, he would like to explore new approaches to the study of human-nature relationships made possible by an integral ecology.
