Nikola supports restoration strategy at Conservation International, where he guides the organization’s work to restore the world's degraded landscapes on an unprecedented scale.

Nikola is developing landscape restoration plans, regenerative business models and new restoration methodologies to support the widespread adoption of best practices informed by the needs of local communities. He is also connecting local field sites to the global financial and technical resources they need to successfully manage restored ecosystems. In 2019, Nikola led a panel at the United Nations on what the world needs to do to unlock restoration at scale. He is currently supporting landscape restoration programs in Brazil, Peru, Kenya, the Philippines and Indonesia.

Prior to joining Conservation International, Nikola was an assistant forest manager for the Yale School of Forests. He developed inclusive economic development policy tools for city governments, was the lead author on the 2016 Environmental Performance Index agriculture section, a globally recognized tool used to evaluate national sustainability, and pursued his own ecological farming start-up venture.

Nikola obtained his Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Studies from Vassar College, and a joint Master of Forestry and Master of Business Administration from the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies and the Yale School of Management.
