Rafal Chudy – footballer and forester with experience on many positions. He likes to play tough, but has never got a red card. Rafal was gaining an experience in teams such as SLU, NCSU, SGGW, UH and UHH. Next, he transferred to a football intern camp to State Forests in Poland. After two years of being a bench warmer and having no further perspectives for personal and professional development, he was noticed by NMBU, where he moved immediately based on a free transfer agreement.

My name is Bruno Kanieski; I am a Ph.D. candidate in Forest Economics at North Carolina State University. I have over five years of experience in the Brazilian Forest Sector. I worked as a consultant in forest appraisals, analysis of timber market and forest investment returns, and sustainable forest management. My research interest is to apply economic theories to the forest market. As an forest economist, I believe the market forces can help us to achieve sustainable forest management and increase regional wealth. My research focus is on the impacts of forest certification on international trade, as well as, timber market structure in the USA and Brazil. I am looking forward to keep in touch with my fellow readers and spread interesting topics to foresters over the world.
