I work with the sustainability politics of international development, conservation, environmental planning and management and natural resource management and use. Currently, this includes research projects on: transdisciplinary methodologies involving small-scale fisheries and mining in Chile; social sustainability in marine spatial planning in the Baltic Sea Region; developing transdisciplinary approaches to marine resource conflict transformation.
