She began her work with community fire management through a Darwin Initiative project in 2017. After her work with the Darwin project, Fanny attended Fire Modeling and Fire Behavior training at Tall Timbers Research Station, USA, one of the world’s premier sites for wildland fire science. Since then, Fanny has collaborated on fire modeling and fire management projects in the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico, Costa Rica and Belize. Her interest is in providing methods and techniques to assess fire risk and develop strategies to manage fire in tropical ecosystems.
