I am interested in understanding collective actions towards social adaptation and transformation of marine social-ecological systems and coastal communities. I use quantitative models combined with participatory approaches with multiple local stakeholders to investigate the spatial synergies and trade-offs of marine uses of different activities (e.g., commercial and recreational fisheries, aquaculture) under future scenarios, with emphasis on the role of local traditional knowledge on social norms.
