I graduated from Stanford in 2012 with a B.S. in Earth Systems, focusing on marine science. I also earned a Master’s of Environmental Science and Management from the Bren School at UC Santa Barbara in 2014, where I studied environmental economics and policy. My academic background is quite diverse and interdisciplinary. I have worked on projects related to measuring GHG emissions from thawing subsea permafrost in the Arctic, nutrient cycling in pre-contact Hawaiian agricultural systems, and marine spatial planning for industrial aquaculture in Southern California. I am currently in my first year as a PhD student in the Emmett Interdisciplinary Program in Environment and Resources (E-IPER), where my research focuses on evaluating the role seafood will play in the future of food production. In particular, I am interested in how market forces will shape the demand for, and production of seafood from both wild capture fisheries and aquaculture, how these changes will affect the environmental impacts of food production, and how current and future policy can incorporate these understandings to achieve food security while incurring minimal environmental cost.
