    Ph.D. Student in Environment and Resources

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsSafari is interested in the intersection of the ocean, global food systems, and human behavior—especially in how aquaculturists and fishers in developing countries make decisions related to natural resources. In particular, she is studying small-scale aquaculture and fisheries and how policy, markets, social learning networks, and climate change affect their sustainable development. Do aquaculture and fisheries contribute to food security in developing countries? How do environmental and policy changes affect the mental models of aquaculturists and fishers? How can policy, markets, and philanthropy support sustainable aquaculture and fisheries and ensure the livelihoods of the people involved in them?
