Currently, her research focuses on (i) effects of women participation in decision making over natural resources; (ii) effects of poverty alleviation programs on conservation; and (iii) nudging for biodiversity, what motivates biodiversity conservation – money or social norms. 

Anna has an active role in a capacity building program for an Inclusive Green Economy in East Africa and is a domestic associate at Environment for Development (EfD) Initiative. She is also an active member in the Focali network and part of the researcher team at the think tank Ownershift.
