I am studying Ocean and Coastal Resource Management in my Environmental Masters program at MIIS. I will be working for the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary creating a Climate Adaptation Plan and Kelp Plan as a 2024 CA Sea Grant Fellow.
Areas of interest
I am interested in marine protected areas, particularly in the high seas, and how the international community can finance ocean and climate solutions.
My project analyzes lessons learned from the implementation of large-scale marine protected areas (MPAs), and how they can help inform future high seas MPAs to transform conflict in areas beyond national jurisdiction. This conflict transformation also includes conflict between humans and animals.
