Research areas

Through her research, Dr. Aceves Bueno aims to find solutions to complex marine resources management problems. Her primary focus is on artisanal fisheries, with the objective of finding arrangements that provide artisanal fishing communities with the appropriate conditions for ecosystem stewardship. Her work is interdisciplinary, implementing novel methodologies from diverse disciplines, including ecology, economics and anthropology. Through a combination of theoretical simulations and empirical methods, she aims to assess the effect that different institutional arrangements have on socio-ecological systems in the face of climate change.

Dr. Aceves Bueno teaches:

  • SMEA 519: Marine Policy Analysis
  • SMEA 591: Marine Science in the Coastal Zone
