Maggie Chory

A recent Master of Environmental Management (MEM) graduate from the Duke Nicholas School of the Environment, Maggie is excited to be working as a Data Technician with the Illuminating Hidden Harvests (IHH) team. While at Duke, her Masters Project focused on subsistence fishing in NC’s Carteret County, conducting interviews on local public fishing infrastructure. Maggie also worked as a member of a Bass Connections team creating Ocean Evidence Gap Maps to assess the state of evidence in published literature on marine conservation interventions, in order to shape future research priorities. She has also held two federal internships involving marine protected area policy, both in the United States and abroad. Maggie’s broad interests are in marine management strategies that can lead to positive impacts for both ecological and human communities.
