I am an interdisciplinary marine social scientist interested in knowledge, values, equity, and power in fisheries governance and coastal management. I primarily approach my work through critical and feminist informed geographies and science & technology studies, political ecology, and sociology. I currently study interactions between offshore wind development and fisheries in the Gulf of Maine.
