- I am an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Department of Environmental Science at American University. As a marine social scientist, my research focuses on innovation in seafood value chains, global trade and marketing of seafood toward sustainability. I bring a combination of private and public sector experience to my work in conservation, policy and international development in fisheries. The scope of my work and research allows me to interact with the fishing industry, commercial markets, marine scientists, policy makers, development practitioners, international donors and investors to lead multilateral collaborations and research initiatives in fisheries. I hold a PhD in Marine Affairs from the University of Rhode Island and undergraduate degree in Latin American Studies from Goucher College. I have conducted research and fieldwork in Africa with support from the Rockefeller Foundation and the United States Agency for International Development. In addition to teaching, I have fished in Alaska and currently lead market engagement for International Fisheries at The Pew Charitable Trusts.
