CURRICULUM VITAE, June 2019

A SOCIAL SCIENTIST WHO STUDIES SUSTAINABILITY,

I am a common-pool resource scholar using mixed social science methods (ethnography, surveys, and economic experiments) to study collective action for sustainability in small-scale fisheries. My work broadly examines how decentralization policies create new opportunities for small-scale fishers to organize, cooperate, and improve their wellbeing under ineffectual governments.
