Curriculum Vitae

Arielle Levine’s research interests focus on interactions between people and their environments and the implications of these interactions for natural resource management and conservation. The majority of Dr. Levine’s current research program centers on understanding and managing marine resources in a changing environment. Her field locations have included California, coastal Tanzania, American Samoa, and Hawaii. Currently, her research examines community participation in natural resource management, as well as climate impacts on coral reef fisheries and fisheries in the California Current.
