BA Environmental Studies and Anthropology, Dartmouth College


Interested in all things seafood, Phoebe’s research focuses on the social and spatial implications of emerging aquaculture and fisheries markets. Her current projects include mapping seaweed aquaculture’s potential to mitigate nutrient pollution, surveying California consumers to understand diversity of seafood species consumption, and outlining seafood ideal for direct sales. She is a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow, a UCSB Doctoral Scholars Fellow, a Bren School Kuni Fellow, and a SESYNC Graduate Fellow.

Prior to UCSB, she worked at World Wildlife Fund for two years to increase the uptake of aquaculture certification and transparency in seafood supply chains. Phoebe holds a BA from Dartmouth College. In her spare time she likes working with her hands, being outside and making bad puns.
