Research Area:  Ocean governance, coastal community resilience, fisheries policy, social-ecological dynamics

Research:  I am broadly interested in questions about the design and maintenance of formal and informal institutions that support sustainable fisheries and the communities that depend on them. Towards this objective, my research team is currently working on a range of interdisciplinary projects related to ecosystem-based fisheries management, seafood distribution and trade, community resilience, and aquaculture.
