Dustin Duncan

Pronouns: he/him

Dustin Duncan graduated from the University of California, Santa Barbara in 2022 with a B.S. in Aquatic Biology. Growing up in San Diego, CA, Dustin was in and around the water his entire life. As a result, his goal in his undergraduate career was to learn more about the relationship between humans and aquatic ecosystems. It became apparent in his undergraduate research that a greater emphasis was required to determine and show how this relationship could be both widely sustainable and profitable. After graduation, Dustin participated in an internship developing Community Based Fisheries Management plans in the Hawaiian Islands. Dustin’s goal in completing the Bren Masters of Environmental Science and Management is to investigate the best practices that will incentivise companies to invest in marine resource management from a bottom-up perspective. More specifically, he hopes to explore various practices of marine management that benefit marine ecosystems while ensuring shareholder profit for both communities and investing companies. He will also explore how to effectively communicate the effect of profitable sustainable endeavors to business executives.
