Hi! I am Laura Secco.

I am Associate Professor at TESAF Department – University of Padova, in Italy. I hold a MSc in Forestry Sciences (1994) and a PhD in Land Use, Rural Appraisal and Forest Economics (1999). I am the e-coordinator of our Erasmus+ ECOSTAR e-learning course!

Since the beginning of my carrier, I have been traveling to different countries (Finland, with a scholarship at the European Forest Institute (EFI) in Joensuu; Guyana and Suriname as EFI external contracted researcher; Sudan, Romania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Malaysia, Chile, Nepal, Morocco, Tunisia and other countries for short professional missions). At the beginning, I have been working as consultant in forest and environmental certification and forest management for about 10 years. Then, in 2005, I entered the University of Padua as a researcher, keeping this position until December 2014. After this date, I have been positively evaluated for being appointed as Associate Professor. grande sorriso!!!

I am doing research but also teaching a couple of frontal courses, i.e. "Forest policy and governance: managing conflicts" within the MSc SUTROFOR and MEDfOR EM programmes and "Local Development Planning with Social and Environmental Responsibility" within the MSc Local Development of the University of Padua. I am also coordinating and moderating other 2 e-learning courses, one on "Climate Change and Forestry: Monitoring and Policy" - initially delivered for SUTROFOR and SUFONAMA Erasmus Mundus programmes and now included in our ordinary teaching activity, and one on "Research Project Development Methodology" - delivered to MEDfOR Erasmus Mundus programme.

Being involved in the PhD School LERH (Land, Environment, Resource and Health) and the FONASO international PhD program, I am supervising a number of PhD students - and MSc students too. I am also coordinating students field trainings in developing countries.

Talking about personal interests.... My favorite hobbies are trekking (I love my Dolomites mountains, where my own family comes from!), skiing, climbing, reading, drawing and traveling. My favorite sacred forest is Cansiglio Forest! But my partner Enrico, my 10 and 4-years daughters (Camilla and Valentina) are my best! I also like to spend time with my friends, possibly in a lovely forest!
