Havananda Ombashi is postdoc in ANTHEA and co-responsible for WP2. She studies grazing and anthropogenic pressure through pollen, NPPs and charcoal dust and uses age/depth modelling of lake sediments, pollen/vegetation modeling and statistical analysis to reconstruct heathland management practices.
