Alfredo Gironnava


Dr. Giron-Nava is a Postdoctoral Research Scholar at the Future Earth & National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis at the University of California, Santa Barbara and an Expert Advisor at the Walter Munk Foundation for Oceans. Dr. Giron-Nava plans to use his Fellowship to pursue the creation of the first global map on the prevalence of poverty in fishing communities. He will visit colleagues and field sites to not only gather data on poverty indicators, but also to understand the deeper social and cultural roots of poverty and the potential solutions at local scales.
