Adjunct Associate Research Fellow at ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies, James Cook University

Pip is an environmental social scientist with expertise in equitable governance of fisheries in the developing world. Pip's primary research contribution has been to illuminate interactions between governance scale, productivity and distribution of fisheries goods and services, and food and nutrition security. In these areas Pip's research is commonly applied and engages closely with adjustments to policy and practice. She has published on these topics in (for example) Nature, Global Environmental Change, Ecology and Society, Ambio, Food Security, and Fish and Fisheries based on my empirical research in Australia, Tonga, Timor-Leste, Solomon Islands. Since receiving her PhD in 2013, she has worked for WorldFish (an international research organisation part of the CGIAR focused on food secure futures) and acts as a Partner Investigator for the Australian Research Council’s Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies at James Cook University.
