Research and Professional Interests
I am broadly interested in social-ecological systems, small-scale fisheries interactions, and the intersection of local ecological knowledge and scientific inquiry. Through interdisciplinary approaches I evaluate resilience, perceptions, and sustainability of small-scale fishing efforts from multiple lenses. I am passionate about community-based and cooperative approaches to management and policy development. Additionally, I am enthusiastic about outreach and education and aim to promote broad accessibility to science of all different age groups.
