Faculty Advisor:  Dr. Joshua Stoll

Office Location:  Libby Hall, University of Maine, Orono, Maine.

Biographical Statement/Research Area:  After graduating from the University of Santa Cruz with a BA in 2010, I went to work with Greenpeace as a fundraiser and organizer, and later as a deckhand on their ships. In between ship tours, I lived aboard a 36 foot sailboat, Tupac Amaru, traveling around Europe, Africa and South America by wind. I love the ocean and care about the people who live and work on and around it. I see the climate and environmental crises as human crises and believe the best policies are the ones that come from the affected communities. I’m excited to use science as a tool for social change and to elevate the voices of small scale fishing communities while earning my Masters in Marine Policy.
