Anna Costanza

I am a midwest native and excited to be on the west coast studying the intersection of Marine Sciences, GIS and global development.  I earned a B.A. in Environmental Science and Ecology from Goshen College, Indiana in 2015, and completed a Certificate II in Geographic Information Systems and Technology from Foothill College in 2016. 
I am most interested in the implications of by-catch in small scale fisheries, and using GIS tools and community involvement to mitigate marine mammal fatalities. I will be working with Dr. Ellen Hines to explore this topic further.
