Kailin Kroetz

Scientific Review Committee Member

Dr. Kailin Kroetz is in the School of Sustainability at Arizona State University. Kailin’s research focuses on policy questions related to aquatic and terrestrial species management. Kailin’s  fisheries economics work is focused on developing and evaluating fisheries management policies with multiple objectives such as sustainable stocks, economic efficiency, and thriving fishing communities. Her current work includes analyzing the design of commercial fishery catch-share programs in the United States and developing-country contexts. She also examines the potential gains to fishing communities from integrating socioeconomic factors into ecosystem-based fisheries management (EBFM) decision frameworks. Her additional research focuses on how to efficiently use terrestrial conservation funds to maximize biodiversity protection. For example, Kailin’s ongoing work examines the extent to which conservation actions taken by government and private organizations operating across spatial scales may be complementary to one another, and/or may present opportunities for more efficient use of conservation funds by considering the actions of other stakeholders. Kailin received her PhD from the University of California, Davis. Kailin served on SESYNC’s Scientific Review Committee.
