Dr. Tammy Davies is a conservation scientist interested in how an interdisciplinary approach can be used to understand social-ecological systems. She has worked in marine conservation across a range of scales from community-based resource management in SW Madagascar to global analyses on the effectiveness of large marine protected areas. During her postdoctoral fellowship with Dr Natalie Ban at the University of Victoria (Canada), Dr. Davies focused on the conservation potential of large marine protected areas, and trade-offs across social and ecological outcomes. Dr. Davies has also participated in international networks to improve large-scale marine conservation, including developing a social science research agenda and management guidelines for large marine protected areas. Dr. Davies is currently a Marine Scientist at BirdLife International working on issues relating to biodiversity beyond national jurisdictions.
