Post-Doctoral Fellow, Fisheries Economics Research Unit, University of British Columbia

Dr. Dana Miller is funded by a prestigious SSHRC Fellowship for two years from November 2012.

Dana’s research focuses on the topic of international fisheries management and economics - specifically, the practice of fishing under flags of convenience (FoCs), aiming to identify factors which incentivise or discourage their use.

Most recently, Dana has been travelling abroad in SE Asia and lived in Sydney for the first half of this year where she worked with WWF-Australia on their ‘Sustainable Seafood’ campaign. Prior to this, Dana completed her PhD at University College Dublin in Ireland, where she was investigating various issues associated to the sustainability of the seafood industry in Ireland including industry transparency and product mislabelling. Dana also completed a taught MSc in Conservation and Biodiversity at Trinity College Dublin and her BSc was completed here at UBC where she majored in Marine Biology.
