Deqiang Ma

My PhD research focuses on 1) methods to design ecosystem services offsets, 2) impacts of accounting for the supply of ecosystem services on the spatial location of biodiversity offsetting solutions, and 3) impacts of accounting for social equity in access to ecosystem services on the spatial location of biodiversity offsetting solutions.

I am a PhD student in interested in  how including ecosystem services considerations might change biodiversity offsetting policies in coastal environments. My PhD focuses on issues following that, 1) how to design ecosystem services offsets, 2) how does accounting for the supply of ecosystem services change the spatial location of biodiversity offsetting solutions, and 3) how does accounting for social equity in access to ecosystem services change the spatial location of biodiversity offsetting solutions.
