About Me Independent journalist with specialist expertise in marine and freshwater environments. I'm a regular contributor to Al Jazeera America and a general assignment reporter with Reuters News. My expertise comes from a background in science--I hold a BSc in aquatic bioscience, and MPhil in Environment and Development and a PhD in fisheries and aquaculture--and ten years professional experience living and working in Southeast Asia as a research scientist leading international projects on resource management and food security. As a journalist, I want readers to understand the science behind the story, as well as what's at stake for people impacted by science, technology and environmental change. In 2013, I received the I.F. Stone Award for emerging investigative journalists from the Nation Institute's iFund. My research focuses on the science and politics of mine development in the United States.
