Stephanie has been at Adelaide since 2006 following the completion of her postgraduate studies in Canada. Her interest areas are in natural resource and environmental economics with a particular focus on fisheries. There are three main areas of her research: international sharing; productivity analysis; and behavioural responses. In each area she has made a difference in the way in which we think about fisheries economics through developing new datasets to examine unanswered questions; adapting tools to be more applicable to analysing fisheries from an economics perspective; or identifying unexplored aspects of fishing behaviour.

My areas of research interest are in natural resource and environmental economics, at present my work is focused on fisheries.
