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/justice in marine spatial planning in the Baltic Sea Region (Taking Social Sustainability to the Sea) and developing transdisciplinary approaches to marine resource conflict transformation across the global North and South (OCEANS PACT).
