Research Associate, Ocean Collectiv


Megan currently works as an analyst using Global Fishing Watch to increase transparency on the high seas and identify illegal fishing activity. She holds a Bachelor’s Degree with high honors in Environmental Studies from New York University. Her thesis focused on modeling the global production potential for marine bivalve aquaculture. Growing up alongside the Puget Sound, she became interested in marine ecology and conservation at a young age, going on to receive the Moore Marine Ecology and Conservation Scholarship at NYU for her work with Sea Star Wasting Disease in the South Puget Sound and the San Juan Islands. While at NYU she also received the Environmental Studies Department Scholarship and Martin Hoffert Graduation Prize. She plans to continue to use data analysis to advance ocean conservation and environmental policy and hopes to one day transform this passion into a PhD.
