Jeremiah is a PhD student interested in the intersection of science and policy and how science is used in the policy-making process. His current research focuses on understanding the adaptation of learning networks and knowledge transfer among the members of the Locally Managed Marine Area (LMMA) Network of the Indo-Pacific, a not-for-profit network that supports community-driven adaptive marine resource management and conservation. Find out more about what Jeremiah does (here) and more about the LMMA Network (here).

Ashwin Ravikumar completed his PhD in Environmental Studies in 2013. His doctoral work used primary and secondary data from Bolivia to examine the effects of various types of inequality on forest governance outcomes, and how institutional design may - or may not - mitigate some of the adverse consequences of inequality. He is currently a postdoctoral research fellow at the Center for International Forestry Research in Lima, Peru.
