I'm currently a 2nd year PhD student at Duke University in the Marine Geospatial Ecology Lab directed by Dr. Patrick N. Halpin. My doctoral research in ocean science focuses on high seas fisheries, corporate powers, and ocean governance. My work aims to examine high seas fisheries using Global Fishing Watch data to calculate fishing effort for corporate actors. I then apply these findings to Regional Fisheries Management Organization (RFMO) activities and conservation measures. The goal of this work is to ensure protection of the "common heritage of mankind" through accountability of non-state actors and international governance structures.
