Research Interests

My research interests lie at the intersection of social and ecological systems, addressing marine policy questions through application of economic theory and quantitative models. Thus far, my work has been primarily focused on economic evaluations of catch-share programs, exploring the market relationships, behavioral drivers, and technological parameters that govern individual outcomes and management success.
