Lars Hein is Professor Ecosystem Services and Environmental Change and deputy chair of the Environmental Systems Analysis Group at Wageningen University. He published over 100 articles in the field of ecological economics, natural resource management and land use planning. Lars was previously employed as Senior Environmental Advisor at Shell International (2006-2010) and as Environmental Expert at the FAO/World Bank Collaborative Program, Rome (1997-2002). He is a member of several advisory boards for both industry and international organisations and received a number of awards for his research including a prestigious Personal Grant from the European Research Council in 2010.
