My research examines human-environment relationships and the role of coastal and marine spaces in mediating those relationships. Key questions that interest me include: How are abstract ideas (like ‘ocean planning’) made real through social and technological means? How is environmental policymaking performed, and how are power relationships created and transformed in the process? My current work is focused on how coastal regions in the U.S. are interpreting marine spatial planning policies, and what this means for communities and environmental actors.
