Melissa Marschke

Associate Professor, School of International Development and Global Studies, L’Université d’Ottawa/University of Ottawa

I am an Associate Professor at the School of International Development and Global Studies at the University of Ottawa. My training is in human-environment relations, with an emphasis on livelihoods, common pool resources and environmental governance. My geographical focus is Southeast Asia, although recently I’ve also become interested in seafood in Canada and the Caribbean. I am currently involved in research projects examining (a) work across the seafood sector, and (b) sand livelihoods. I am the author of “Life, Fish and Mangroves: Resource governance in coastal Cambodia” (U Ottawa Press, 2012), and have published in various journals including Marine Policy, Annals of the American Association of Geographers, Ecology & Society, The Canadian Geographer, and Journal of Rural Studies.
