I use methods and approaches from human geography, political ecology, and commodity studies to pursue a broad program of research on issues of sustainability and equity in marine conservation and seafood production.
My dissertation research focuses on the changing landscape of global shrimp production and the role of aquaculture and newly emergent shrimp diseases in shaping commodity relationships. I also collaborate with a fantastic group of spatial ecologists and social scientists to explore how fishing communities respond to climate driven range shifts in target species. Additional work investigates the emergence of local seafood systems, such as Community Supported Fisheries, in North America. You can find more information about all of these projects under the research tab above.
