For three months in 2014 I pursued a research project with a damn cool professor, Dr. Amelia Moore, while jotting down some stories about architecture, anthropology, and the ocean. Now, I’m off on my own for a Watson Fellowship year to further explore how coral restoration and conservation interact with personal senses of agency in the face of global climate change.

I’m exploring coral conservation communities and the different ways that people think about their own agency in dealing with the impacts of global climate change. I intend to visually communicate the way conservationists redesign nature, and critically examine the ways that tourism interacts with environmental health and environmental justice. I hope to create a comprehensive narrative of the benefits and dangers of ecotourism through photojournalism and writing, one that inspires communities to local action and encourages agencies to finance these initiatives. Hopefully I can make this site an index of ways to approach coral restoration.
