Research

Combining NATURAL & SOCIAL SCIENCES

Some of the most interesting questions can be asked and answered at the boundaries between disciplines. Throughout my work, I aim to bring different fields together to help find solutions to pressing social and environmental challenges.

Research themes

Knowledge Brokering

Which approaches best enable evidence-informed policy, benefiting society & the environment?

Climate change

How will ocean warming & ocean acidification impact the relationships between species?

Applied Ecology

What can we do to reduce accidental bycatch & improve the efficacy of sustainable aquaculture?

Using tools to support marine policy

Exploring how complex models like Atlantis can be used to support marine management and address challenges associated with shipping and oil transport.

My current work within the Marine Ethnoecology Research Group at the University of Victoria, Canada, is in close collaboration with the Centre of Marine Socioecology, CSIRO, Australia.
