Stanislav is a researcher in geography in the Social, Economic and Geographical Sciences Department (the Environmental Governance and Land Management Group). He has an educational background in human geography and an experience in interdisciplinary research. In his PhD thesis he studied how farmers, farms and rural areas are adapting to the ongoing energy transition. Stanislav is interested in social and spatial consequences of planning and operation of sustainable bioenergy systems and especially in the links with the recent changes in agriculture. He is also keen on learning more about the low-carbon re-use options for abandoned farms and rural wastelands. 

A note for stakeholders was published in December 2021.
