Myriam Dumortier is a senior researcher, focusing on the interaction between agriculture and biodiversity. She is interested in the state of biodiversity in the rural environment, on agricultural practices favourable for biodiversity (e.g. agro-ecological farming) and on the synergies between farming and nature conservation. She is also involved in policy support (e.g. though the project Contracts 2.0). She is member of the team Nature and Society, involved in participatory approaches, co-creation and soft systems methodology. Myriam holds a Master and a PhD in Bioscience Engineering. During the 90’s, she worked in community forestry and rural development in South-Asia.

In 2020, she re-joined INBO to focus on agriculture. Since 2007 she is also a professor on forest and nature policy at Ghent University.
