About

My research will focus on linking ocean and human health by considering how human activity impacts marine ecosystems and the services they provide such as nutrition and livelihoods. Additionally, I am interested in exploring solutions to create equitable and sustainable seafood production. I plan to employ a combination of field ecology, social science, and meta-analyses to contribute to the burgeoning field of planetary health.
