Juan-Carlos Rocha | PhD, researcher

Juan Rocha’s research questions are oriented to understanding emergent patterns, from regime shifts in ecological systems to collective action in society. In the long term, his research agenda intents to answer basically two questions. First, which variables would indicate changes in the resilience of different social-ecological systems, or how can we systematically identify resilience surrogates?. Second, how do misperceptions of feedbacks in system dynamics lead to governance misfit, poverty and rigidity traps, market failures as well as conflicts between stakeholders? Juan believes that advancing sustainability science requires embracing the complexity of the social-ecological systems we live in.
