Melissa Marschke

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

I am a 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, social-ecological change, and forms of resource governance. My geographical focus began in Southeast Asia, although is increasingly global in nature. I am currently involved in research projects examining (a) forced labour, unacceptable working conditions, and opportunities for improvement in the seafood sector (Work at Sea); (b) the role of trash fish (forage/juvenile) in global seafood supply chains; and (c) livelihood precarity in the sand system.
