Robin is a doctoral student at the Duke University Marine Lab with interests in political ecology and human geography. Her research is guided by an interest in how social systems and marine ecosystems interact, the governance structures used to moderate those interactions, and the processes for integrating diverse values, knowledge systems, and priorities into policymaking. She is interested in how human-environment relations are enacted and understood differently in the face of competing values. Her dissertation research focuses on the role of discourse in constituting politics and policies related to aquaculture development and the equity implications of policy tradeoffs in this sector.
