Interdisciplinary Methods for Implementing Sustainable Aquaculture in California

Ariadne is a doctoral student in the Institute of the Environment & Sustainability at UCLA. Her research centers around marine ecosystem conservation and management, and aquaculture science and policy. Specifically, she is interested in understanding drivers of aquaculture planning and policy, and integrating sustainable aquaculture methods and products into local food systems in California. She uses spatial analysis, policy analysis, and social science methods in her research.

Before joining UCLA, Ariadne earned a master’s degree from the Bren School at UC Santa Barbara, specializing in coastal marine resources management, and worked as a marine biologist at The Bay Foundation restoring kelp forests and abalone populations in the Santa Monica Bay. Ariadne is a Cota-Robles Fellow and a member of the Center for Diverse Leadership in Science (CDLS). She is advised by Dr. Kyle Cavanaugh.
