Dr. Sietze J. Norder
My research focuses on human-environment interactions in South America (North-West Amazon) and across islands worldwide. I study how geography, ecology and climate have shaped human migration and land use. In addition, I aim to understand the biodiversity and linguistic legacies of past environmental dynamics and human activities.
Fields of interest
- Human-environment interactions
- Drivers of biological, linguistic and cultural diversity
- Social-ecological systems
- Geospatial analysis
