Kristina Boerder

Postdoctoral Scientist

In collaboration with Global Fishing Watch and other partners around the globe, Kristina is working to apply big data in the context of marine spatial planning and conservation. Her research includes analyses of human pressures on the ocean such as fishing, shipping and underwater noise using satellite vessel tracking data, as well as the role of environmental and oceanographic parameters and climate change for conservation measures such as the design of marine protected areas and integrated maritime management. This work supports the current development of a novel, freely available online platform and database including integrated analysis tools to facilitate dynamic marine spatial planning around the globe.
