I am an interdisciplinary scholar interested in the complex and myriad inter-linkages between the environment, the economy and society. I employ both conceptual and analytical tools in understanding best management practices in sustaining natural resources and human well-being at multiple scales. Most of my research foci have been on fisheries sustainability issues globally, as well as regionally (West Africa) and nationally (Canada). I am currently working on climate change adaptation portfolios in Atlantic Canada and the Caribbean region. Prior to this, I was a research fellow with UNEP- IEMP in Beijing. I contributed to UNEP’s ecosystem-based adaptation flagship program in Seychelles and to the governance of ecosystem services in the upper Nile in East Africa. My publications are available as book chapters, policy briefs and articles in journals such as Ambio, Bioeconomics, Coastal Management, Fisheries Research, Marine Policy, Regional Environmental Change, and Science.
