We know that the sustainability of our blue planet is under threat from humans, through climate change, marine debris, overfishing, and marine habitat destruction. However, we also have a globally increasing population that needs food and energy and is looking to the seas for it.
How can we balance these apparently competing interests? How can we ensure that we are managing our ocean and coastal resources in a fair and sustainable way? How do we manage conflict in the marine environment? These are the types of questions that I ask in my research.
On this website, we will communicate ideas and project findings from our research. On this site, you will find infographics, videos, and blogs for you to read, listen to, and use. You can also access our academic papers directly from this site.
