Jonathan Choi

I joined Duke in 2017 to pursue both a Ph.D. in Marine Science and Conservation through the Nicholas School and a J.D. at Duke Law School. Most broadly, I am interested in the intersection between ecological science and law. In my work with Pat Halpin in the Marine Geospatial Ecology Lab, I am interested in the intersection between marine spatial planning, ecosystem based management, areas beyond national jurisdiction, and both domestic and international environmental law. 

Before coming to Duke, I was the Environmental Health High Meadows Fellow at Environmental Defense Fund in DC. I graduated from Princeton University in 2015 with a degree in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology.
