Trained initially as a marine biologist, Dr Annette Breckwoldt is an interdisciplinary senior scientist in the working group Social-ecological Systems Analysis in the Social Science Department of the Leibniz Centre for Tropical Marine Research (ZMT). She is leading the German part of the binational project SOCPacific – A Sea of Connections: contextualizing fisheries in the South Pacific. The interdisciplinary project anchors in anthropology, geography and political ecology, in dialogue with natural sciences (marine biology, ecology, geology). It offers a cross-sectional and multi-level approach to fisheries in Fiji, New Caledonia and Vanuatu, based largely on empirical social science research. Annette is also part-time lecturer for interdisciplinarity between natural and social sciences at Faculty 2 (Biology/Chemistry) of the University of Bremen.
