My main research focuses on our relationship with our water planet and the animals that roam our oceans. For several decades our team has studied sea turtle biology and marine conservation. Lately research has expanded to include neuroconservation: cognitive science as it relates to our relationship with nature, including a project we call Blue Mind Life.
