Kristin Hoel

BA (Biology) St Olaf College, Minnesota
Masters student, James Cook University

Kristin Hoel is a postgraduate student from the United States studying Marine Biology at James Cook University. Though she hails from the landlocked Midwest, field experience has taken Kristin from animal husbandry in Florida to coral reef and shark conservation in Fiji and presently to pursuing her Masters in North Queensland. She has had the opportunity to work closely with and learn from rural communities in Ecuador and Fiji, which ignited her interest in co-management and adaptable management of marine resources. Kristin is particularly interested in working to develop better science communication strategies for marine resources and fisheries to increase public awareness and responsibility for their role in sustainable use of our oceans.

Kristin’s current projects include:
