Research Interests

My research examines the depths and horizons of human entanglements with the sea. For my dissertation, I concentrate on the West African Guinea Current and its attendant “upwelling” of nutrient rich waters off the coast of Ghana. I approach this recurring oceanographic phenomenon as a powerful cultural, ecological and political-economic force that gathers a host of human and non-human actors. Spatial and temporal questions regarding oceanic (im)mobilities, IUU fishing, offshore surveillance and seasonal migrations guide my analysis.
