On this episode, I am joined by Dr. Ana Spalding, an Assistant Professor of Marine and Coastal Policy in the School of Public Policy at Oregon State University. Dr. Spalding has a BA in Economics from the University of Richmond, an MA in Marine Affairs and Policy from the University of Miami, and a PhD in Environmental Studies from UC Santa Cruz.

During her research, Dr. Spalding has worked closely with Panamanian NGOs and with NOAA’s National Marine Protected Areas Center in California. She has also engaged with academics and practitioners from a variety of backgrounds, including ecologists, biologists, anthropologists, economists, policy-makers, and lawyers as well as members of local indigenous communities in both the U.S and the Caribbean and Pacific coasts of Panama.
