Position Dodd Interdisciplinary Fellow Degree Seeking PhD Email firstname.lastname@example.org Undergraduate Institution University of North Florida Undergraduate Degree BS | Biology \\ BA | Anthropology Masters Institution James Cook University Masters Degree MSSc | Environment and Heritage CV Crespo_Dodd CV 2018.pdf Research Detail Understanding knowledge, art, science, and conservation as intimately intertwined, Crespo draws from multiple disciplines to explore how people collaborate in creating knowledge and how power is interwoven in these processes. Specifically, she is interested in using practices of storytelling and feminist epistemologies to examine the production of transnational coral reef science and conservation collaborations between Cuba, Mexico, and the United States. Moreover, her work explores how interpersonal relations and everyday interactions shape these collaborative encounters. Biography Christina Crespo is a PhD student in Integrative Conservation and Anthropology and is completing a Graduate Certificate in Women’s Studies. Her broad research interest is how alternative approaches to science and collaboration can generate knowledge—in more inclusive and equitable ways— to confront the challenges of a changing world. She became interested in how scientific knowledge is created and translated while completing her BA in Anthropology, after having finished her BS in Biology at the University of North Florida. This experience motivated her MSSc research in which she investigated factors that impede interdisciplinary conservation and explored potential tools for overcoming these barriers at James Cook University in Cairns, Australia. She was as a 2017-2018 Diversity and Inclusion Graduate Fellow at the University of Georgia.
