I am a research fellow in ocean law & policy at U.C. Berkeley School of Law, Center for Law, Energy, and the Environment; a human rights attorney at Blue Ocean Law; and a lecturer in International Relations at Stanford University, where I teach "American Empire in the Pacific." At CLEE, I work on both domestic and international ocean law issues, including offshore energy, marine scientific research, and deep sea mining. Outside of CLEE, my research and writing focus primarily on the intersection of empire, environmental justice, and human rights in Oceania, particularly in U.S. insular areas. I have published in journals including Global Environmental Change, the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, and the Columbia Human Rights Law Review.
