PhD candidate. Thesis title: Understanding the links between the Natural Environment and local perceptions of Human Well-being and Environmental Justice in San Felipe, Yucatán, México.

My research aims to explore the local notion of 'Environmental Justice' in a fishing community of Yucatan, México. By understanding the local perception of how the natural environment contributes to a 'good life' my research aims to understand how poverty and human well-being metrics relate to local notions of environmental justice.


Karen focuses on natural resource justice and its links to ideas of poverty and 'good life’.
