Instructor of Marine Biology and Sustainable Aquaculture
Amanda Moeser is a Distance Education Adjunct Faculty at Unity College. She received a B.S. in Environmental Science (Fish & Wildlife Ecology) from The Evergreen State College and a M.S. in Environmental Science (Conservation Biology) from Antioch University New England. She is an Interdisciplinary Environmental Studies PhD student at Antioch University New England researching equity, diversity, and resilience in small-scale fisheries and aquaculture operations. Her past research experience includes studying interactions between wild fisheries and aquaculture, aquatic community ecology, coastal habitat restoration, and transdisciplinary governance of marine social-ecological systems. Prior to joining Unity, she built shellfish reefs and led community-based marine conservation projects for The Nature Conservancy. She believes learning arises by purposefully seeking out diverse perspectives, working across disciplines, cultivating authentic connections, and applying knowledge to real world problems. She strives to create a multi-dimensional and collaborative learning environment in support of all students. In her free time, she is the sole owner/operator of a shellfish aquaculture farm and enjoys spending time on the water in coastal Maine.
