Biography Ann-Magnhild Solås
I have worked as a research scientist with Nofima since 2015. My main research projects center on coastal zone governance, in particular near shore marine spatial planning and aquaculture management. I am a former student of the Norwegian College of Fisheries Science, UiT – The Arctic University of Norway, where I finished my Master’s degree in fisheries management in 2008 and my PhD in resource management in 2014. The PhD thesis centered on coastal zone planning in Norway. Currently, I coordinate an interdisciplinary project called Coreplan, focusing on governance of coastal ecosystem services through marine spatial planning. I am also a postdoctoral research fellow, funded by the Research Council of Norway. In this project, I study social sustainability in salmon farming in Norway and Canada. As part of this work, I will be visiting the Institute of Resources, Environment and Sustainability (IRES) at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, from August 2017 – July 2018.
