Postgraduate supervision

Charlotte welcomes enquiries from potential students (PhD and Masters) wishing to work on projects on the following themes (broadly interpreted), in the UK and internationally:

- Marine conservation including projects on: Marine Protected Areas (MPAs), marine conservation and marine policy, public perceptions of marine conservation

- Fisheries issues particularly from a social science perspective

- Social dimensions of biodiversity conservation
