I'm currently a 4th year PhD student at Duke University in the Marine Geospatial Ecology Lab directed by Dr. Patrick N. Halpin. My doctoral research focuses on high seas fisheries, corporate powers, and ocean governance. My work aims to examine high seas fisheries using Global Fishing Watch data to calculate fishing effort for corporate actors. I then apply these findings to Regional Fisheries Management Organization (RFMO) activities and conservation measures. The goal of this work is to ensure protection of the high seas from corporate powers and provide a unique lens to view accountability for the use and protection of marine biodiversity.
