Abayinen AmareEstelle Razanatsoa is currently working as a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Cape Town, South Africa, after completing a PhD in Palaeoecology in 2019. Her current research focuses on the response of dry forests in Madagascar to climate change and human land use on a decadal to centennial-scale by combining palaeoecological and modeling approaches. Specifically, she investigates vegetation dynamics, resilience, environmental change under different scenarios of land use, fire, and climate that will help future planning of biodiversity conservation.

Estelle was selected from almost 100 candidates for our Mentoring and Training Program in IPCC Processes for Early Career Mountain Researchers, a joint initiative between the MRI, University of Zurich, Helvetas, and ICIMOD, supported by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation.
