I am an environmental anthropologist investigating human-environmental interactions in coastal zones. My technical expertise lies in social science research methods and qualitative analyses of marine governance, social organizations, resource rights, and fisheries management issues worldwide where I come from the perspective of people's position in socio-ecological systems. I am particularly interested in social sustainability, innovation and adaptation, and risk and resilience. I have also worked on gender issues in fisheries, the cultural valuation of biodiversity/natural resources, social impact assessments of policies, and social indicators for marine management and governance. Additional, current interests include disaster and revitalisation, and visual research methodologies, such as ethnographic film.

My long-term ethnographic work (since 1991) focuses in Japanese coastal communities, most recently on the impact of the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake in Miyagi Prefecture. This ethnographic fieldwork has been funded by groups such as The Japan Foundation, The Centre for Northeast Asian Studies (Tohoku University), and the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science.

I am also researching the role of cultural heritage in social resilience with fieldwork in Miyagi, Japan. My most recent European project, for which I was the Coordinator, was the H2020 Project PERICLES: PrEseRvIng and sustainably governing Cultural heritage and Landscapes in European coastal and maritime regionS (2018-2021).
My regional experience includes Japan, Southeast Asia, and Africa in addition to Greenland and the European Union.

My many service activities include serving as the Editor-in-Chief for The Commons Digest. I also serve on the conference committees for MARE People and the Sea (Amsterdam) and the International Association for the Study of the Commons; serving as a reviewer for numerous academic journal (e.g., Ambio, the IJC, MAST, Fish and Fisheries ICES Journal of Marine Science, serving as an executive board member for Sea and Shore (DK); MARE (the Netherlands); the IASC (International); and serving as an invited International Scientific Expert for the Dutch Pulse Trawl Research Programme. 2015-2019.
