Biography

Naomi Foley is a Postdoctoral Researcher at SEMRU. She was awarded a PhD (Economics) in the area of fisheries economics from NUI Galway. Naomi is currently undertaking research on the H2020 funded ATLAS project (http://www.eu-atlas.org) an interdisciplinary project which aims to assess the Atlantic’s deep sea ecosystems to create the integrated and adaptive planning products needed for sustainable blue growth.  Prior to this position, she has been Postdoctoral Researcher on the Interreg Marnet project with SEMRU and has also worked at the Norwegian College of Fishery Science, University of Tromsø, Norway where she was involved in two EU FP7 projects; CoralFISH and HERMIONE and most recently Norwegian Research Council project CarbonBridge.  

Naomi’s research interests include fisheries economics, management and policy, natural resource economics, valuation of marine ecosystem goods and services and bioeconomic modelling. Her work has been published in a number of peer reviewed journals including Land Economics, Ecosystem Services, Marine Policy and Marine Resource Economics.
