Maud Quinzin

Capacity Assessment Project Manager

Maud is an ocean lover, feeling better at sea than on land, and a troublemaker aspiring to be a caregiver for Earthians (humans too!). Her work centers on sustainability and proactively addresses the biological biodiversity crisis, while she explores approaches that support social and environmental justice. Evolutionary and Conservation Biologist trained in Western Science, she is learning about traditional knowledge and practices with local and indigenous knowledge holders to collaboratively propose holistic remediation against environmental conflicts and threats. She is notably looking at how technologies developed for the exploration and protection of the living world can influence our societies and how societies influence those technologies. For that, her work with indigenous communities to combine traditional knowledge with scientific developments aims at fully understanding local ecosystems and guiding the development of transformative technologies that encourage systemic changes essential for human and non-human lives to thrive on our unique canoe, Earth.
