More about Isabeau Ottolini:

Isabeau Ottolini

Predoctoral researcher · MSCA-ITN grant holder · UOC

Isabeau Ottolini is a PhD Candidate at the UOC and Early Stage Researcher in the PyroLife Innovative Training Network. Specifically, her research is on Inclusive Risk Communication within the context of wildfires.

Isabeau’s research background bridges the natural and social sciences. For her Environmental Sciences BSc (UNED), she worked on forest fire prevention through an environmental education program for local school children. During her MSc in Social Sciences (WUR), Isabeau researched conflicts over wolves (from a communication perspective), water conflicts (through a Political Ecology lens) and rural depopulation (with the Action-Research Group, Recartografías). Together with the NGOs Euromontana and Entretantos, she also worked on sustainable pastoralism and climate change mitigation & adaptation within two European LIFE projects (Oreka Mendian and LiveAdapt).

Whilst the above topics are diverse, they have several elements in common: communication and education as a tool for societal change, human-nature interactions that are often full of tension, a special interest in rural communities, and fire as an always present transversal theme. Altogether these elements form important pillars that are deeply embedded within her thesis project on Inclusive Risk Communication.

  • Communication
  • Socio-environmental conflicts
  • Rural communities
