Anders Sirén is a university lecturer and docent in the geography of renewable natural resources. His research focuses on the use, management, and governance of land and wild resources such as hunted wildlife and non-timber plant resources. He is particularly interested in spatial patterns of resource use and works closely together with local communities in order to improve sustainability of resource use. In his research he combines a wide variety of methods, including field inventories, remote sensing, GIS and spatial bioeconomic modeling, as well as ethnographic and participatory methods. The main study area is in the tropical rainforest lands of the indigenous Kichwa people in Ecuadorian Amazonia.
