Dr. Harriet Harden-Davies is a guest investigator at WHOI’s Marine Policy Center and a postdoctoral fellow at the Australian Natural Centre for Ocean Resources & Security (ANCORS) at the University of Wollongong in Australia. Harriet sat down with Oceanus to talk about her journey into marine policy and why the BBNJ is a game-changing global collaboration. How did you make your way into the world of marine policy? I found my way back into the ocean space when I went to do my PhD at the University of Wollongong in New South Wales, Australia. I was really fascinated by the greater ocean commons—the two-thirds of the ocean that lies in areas beyond national jurisdiction.
