Katherine Seto


Katherine Seto’s research centers on coupled human and natural systems dynamics in marine and coastal systems. Her primary areas of focus are: 

  1.  The contribution of marine resources to food and livelihood security, 
  2.  Governing marine and coastal systems for resource equity and sustainability, and 
  3.  Maritime security and globalization in a context of rapid global change. 

Her work investigates the equity, sustainability, and governance of marine and coastal systems, and the reciprocal relationship they have with human wellbeing and conflict.
