Dr. Brett Favaro is a Liber Ero postdoctoral fellow (www.liberero.ca). His mission is simple: do science that informs the way we manage our natural resources, especially biodiversity. Primarily a marine biologist, Brett's research examines ways to make commercial fishing more sustainable. However, since many conservation problems are inherently political, he studies environmental policy as well.

Brett completed both his Bachelor's of Science and Ph.D at Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada. He writes about his ongoing research on the Liber Ero blog.
