Research Activities •Social Feasibility of Ecosystem Based Management and Marine Protected Areas •Integrated Coastal Management •Marine Protected Area Impacts on Coral Reef Fisheries and Fishing Communities •Participatory Research •Qualitative Social Research Methods Patrick has led various comparative, socio-ecological research projects in the US, Philippines, Indonesia and Latin America to inform the practice of marine resource management. He is particularly interested in the human dimensions of marine conservation employing marine protected areas, ecosystem-based management, and conservation fishing technologies—research which resulted in a Pew Fellowship in Marine Conservation. He recently taught a joint course and research seminar with the University of Washington and the Northwest Indian College on tribal fishing rights in Puget Sound. He regularly provides technical advice on the human dimensions of marine conservation to the UN Food and Agricultural Organization, World Bank, USAID, and various governmental and non-governmental environmental organizations. In addition to his scholarship, he is actively engaged in marine protected area design and implementation in various locations. He draws from his three years of experience living in a Philippine fishing community implementing a community-based marine protected area as a Peace Corps Volunteer. He is an Editor-In-Chief for the journal Coastal Management , board member for the Coastal Conservation and Education Foundation in the Philippines, and former national board member for The Coastal Society. He has a Bachelors degree in zoology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, a Masters degree in conservation biology and Doctorate in environmental sociology and policy from the University of Michigan.
