David Gill, PhD.
SESYNC/Luc Hoffmann Institute
David’s research focuses on identifying linkages between marine protected area (MPA) governance, human well-being, and ecosystem health. The SESYNC Pursuit with which he is affiliated, Solving the Mystery of MPA Performance, brings together an interdisciplinary team of researchers and data from MPAs from around the world to identify key trends between MPAs and their social and ecological impacts. This work, spearheaded by the World Wildlife Fund and supported by the Luc Hoffmann Institute, aims to inform marine conservation policy and strengthen a culture of evaluation in the conservation sector.
