Anastasia Quintana

Anastasia is an early-career PhD student at Duke University’s Nicholas School of the Environment studying human-environment interactions. Her background in biology gives her a platform for understanding the environment from an ecological perspective. She is currently enrolled in a vigorous social science curriculum under the mentorship of Dr. Xavier Basurto, which will give her the tools and expertise necessary to appropriately study the social aspects of community resource management.

She is particularly interested in studying community solutions to environmental problems in low-resource, low-income settings. Currently, her research interests are focused in Costa Rica. She hopes to study how community resource management and community solutions to environmental problems will adapt in response to changes such as new technologies and climate change.

Anastasia is also interested in issues of social and environmental justice, gender equality, and conservation.
