I am pursuing my PhD in the Department of Geography at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa. My research interests include marine resource management and planning, social-ecological system dynamics, and conservation of marine ecosystems in the Hawaiian Archipelago and the Asia-Pacific region.
Though my background is primarily in marine ecology, my PhD research is combining social and ecological methods to investigate the historical ecology of coral reef ecosystems in the Hawaiian Archipelago. In this research I am focusing on investigating the resilience of social-ecological systems in order to better understand the factors that contribute to sustainability
