Rafaella Lobo is a PhD student in Marine Science and Conservation at the Nicholas School of the Environment, Duke University. Advised by Dr. Lisa Campbell, her current interests are on the challenges of international governance for conservation, and the inclusion of perspectives from the global south, particularly at the International Whaling Commission negotiations.

Before coming to Duke, she got her Masters in Political Science from the University of Central Florida, with a focus on Environmental Politics, and a bachelor’s degree in International Relations, from PUC-GO, in Brazil, her home country. Despite an academic focus on political science, she has sought to understand perspectives across different disciplines, and gain field work experience, including, among others, at the Sarasota Dolphin Research Program (Mote Marine Laboratory), the Hubbs SeaWorld Research Institute, and most recently, as an Associate in Research at Dr. Andy Read`s lab (Duke University Marine Lab).
