About

Professor, Department of Marine Ecosystem and Society - Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science

My work focuses on management of coastal areas, including mechanisms to increase institutional cooperation, capacity building, development of management plans, and reduction of conflicts between various resource users. Marine and coastal protected areas and adaptation to climate change are additional areas of my work. I dedicate much of my effort to work in the Caribbean Basin and Latin America but also work around the world.


My undergraduate work in Chemistry and Latin American Studies was at Middlebury College (1972).  I earned Masters degrees in Education and Latin American Studies from Columbia University (1978), a Ph.D. in Oceanography from Scripps Institution of Oceanography (University of California, San Diego), and a J.D. with specialization in Environmental Law from the University of California, Berkeley (1991).
