As a social scientist my research focuses on natural resource management with an emphasis on post-harvest loss, value chain improvements, global trade and marketing of seafood toward sustainability-and food security.

I bring a combination of private, nonprofit, and public sector experience to my work in conservation, policy and international development on pressing environmental issues. The scope of my work and research allows me to interact with industry, commercial markets, scientists, policy makers, development practitioners, international donors and investors to lead multilateral collaborations and research initiatives in the United States and abroad.

I hold a PhD in Marine Affairs from the University of Rhode Island and have conducted fieldwork in Africa and The Americas with support from the Rockefeller Foundation and the United States Agency for International Development.

I have fished commercially in Alaska and most recently led efforts at The Pew Charitable Trusts to engage international markets on fisheries management and policy.
