Teresa Johnson

I am an Associate Professor in the the School of Marine Sciences at the University of Maine. I am also the Marine Policy Graduate Program Coordinator.

Research:

My interdisciplinary research examines the human dimensions of marine fisheries and coastal communities, focusing on the science and policy processes in the Northeast U.S. I am interested in understanding (1) the role of participation and different forms of expertise in science and management, and (2) social and ecological change in coastal communities.

Teaching:

I currently teach an undergraduate course in marine policy and fisheries management and a graduate seminar in marine policy. Additionally, I advise graduate students in the School of Marine Sciences Marine Policy and Dual Marine Policy-Marine Biology degree programs.
