Why did you choose to attend grad school at UMaine? Why did you choose EES?
To make connections in Maine; to work on fisheries issues in New England; and to learn from folks in EES/SMS.
Briefly describe the research project you are working on.
I am broadly interested in fisheries governance within the context of climate change, alternative economies, ecosystem-based management, and community development. Pivoting off the work of J. Wilson and others, my research will explore the linkages between small-scale ecosystems and community-based fisheries management in theory and practice.
