Research Collaborations

Our group strives to focus on questions of value to community members and engage across scales with local, regional, and global organizations.


Collaborations with WorldFish have been key parts of global review efforts. We engage with researchers and partners through working groups at SESYNC, NCEAS, and the Blue Food Assessment.


Kenya research team

We work around Lake Victoria in close collaboration with the Kenya Marine and Fisheries Research Institute. Work on Mfangano Island was conducted with a research team in collaboration with a community-based organization, Organic Health Response, as well as the Mfangano Island Beach Management Units, Kenya Ministry of Fisheries Development, and the Kenya Medical Research Institute.


Work based in Cambodia is in collaboration with Center for Khmer Studies and WorldFish.
