Wei Zhang is a senior research fellow in the Environment and Production Technology Division (EPTD), and leads the research program on ecosystem services under the Natural Resource Management (NRM) theme. Wei conducts policy-relevant research on the intersection between agriculture, development, and nature. Her primary research interests include valuing and modeling ecosystem services in relation to land cover/use and management practices, the economics, decision-making, and behavior of individuals and communities regarding landscape-based ecosystem services (e.g., natural pest regulation), common pool resources (CPRs), and nature-based solutions to sustainable intensification, with gender and climate change as cross-cutting issues.
