Lisa M. Campbell is the Rachel Carson Professor of Marine Affairs and Policy in the Nicholas School of Environment, Duke University. Dr. Campbell studies oceans governance at a variety of scales (international, national, and local) in relation to diverse issues (protected species, fisheries, MSP, MPAs, tourism, etc.) and is particularly interested in how science and non-state actors inform governance processes and outcomes. Dr. Campbell is more generally interested in research methodology, including qualitative methods, inter-disciplinary research, and ethics. She earned her PhD in Geography from Cambridge University (UK), her MA in Environmental Studies and Geography from the University of Toronto (Canada), and her BA&Sc from McMaster University (Canada). She is based at Duke’s Marine Laboratory in Beaufort, NC, where oceans and their governance can be experienced first hand.
