I research counter-hegemonic social movements including environmental, ocean, and educational. My focus is to understand the strategies and escalation of tactics used by these movements including the use of violence. Another focus on my research is how social movements contest new technology and its impact on the labor of labor such as in higher education and other industries.
I recently ran the ocean conservation NGO Seaflow and worked for the NGOs Sea Turtle Restoration Project and Humane Society International where I designed and managed international ocean conservation campaigns concerning the sustainability of industrial fishing and global shipping. My research was published by the United Nations, academic journals and electronic and print media.
