Hi there! I’m Amber, a marine scientist fascinated by the deep-rooted relationship between humans and the ocean.

My research is focused in tropical coastal ecosystems and coastal communities – I combine marine ecology, climate science and social research to address issues of resilience and adaptation in our rapidly changing world.

I have taken part and led scientific expeditions around the world and I was recently named a 2022 Explorer with the Scientific Exploration Society.

I am an interdisciplinary marine scientist. I use both ecological and social approaches to address issues of adaptation and resilience in tropical coastal ecosystems and small-scale fishing communities. Learn more about my research story and recent publications.
