Biography

Dr. Allain Barnett is working at FIU's Institute for Water and Environment, and the School of International and Public Affairs, as a post-doctoral researcher to work with the City of Miami Beach and Miami-Dade County to study green infrastructure initiatives and the social, environmental, and technological factors that contribute to resilience and vulnerability to extremes in the city. Dr. Barnett has a diverse research experience, including research in aquatic community ecology as a Master’s Student, ethnographic research of lobster fishing communities in Nova Scotia during his PhD at Arizona State University, collaborative research on common-pool resources and institutional analysis, and marine debris mapping and recovery projects as a post-doc at University of New Brunswick. He plans to continue to examine the various ways that humans engage in collective action to adapt their social and physical infrastructures to environmental and economic change.
