My current research examines the impacts of marine protected area planning on small scale fishing communities in eastern Indonesia. I work with fishing communities in two neighboring districts of the province of Nusa Tenggara Timur to understand 1) how traditional marine livelihood systems currently function and adapt to the changing social and economic landscape within Indonesia and 2) how such adaptations intersect with the process of planning and managing marine protected areas.
