Marine Protected Area Researcher

Caitlin McGinnis holds a BA in Environmental Studies and Economics from Franklin & Marshall College and an MPA in Environmental Science and Policy from Columbia University's School of International and Public Affairs. Her final thesis at Franklin & Marshall focused on the fair and equitable benefit-sharing of marine genetic resources, as well as the implications of a global treaty governing the high seas. During her time at Columbia’s School of International and Public Affairs, Caitlin’s studies focused on carbon pricing policies in Colombia, Ecuador, and California.

In her free time, Caitlin loves baking, reading, and hiking, and hopes to one day complete the Pacific Crest Trail.
