My research focuses on positive and reciprocal human-ocean relationships and sits within the UNESCO chair program in Communication, Environment, and Heritage. I am interested in how human connections to marine resources have been represented through time, as socio-cultural priorities shift, and as climate change and other anthropogenic pressures progress. I aim to explore these themes with Abalone fisheries and kelp forest management as case studies.

I’m originally from Edmonton, Canada, where I completed my BSc in environmental sciences. A love for diving and work experience as a divemaster led me to pursue my MSc in marine biology at Ghent University, focused on global ocean change.
