Victoria Moreno completed her Master of Public Policy at Oregon State University in 2021. Her graduate research explored Dungeness crabbers’ perceptions of their ability to adapt to ocean acidification (OA) and other environmental stressors in Oregon. Victoria graduated in ’19 from the University of Richmond with her BSc in Environmental Studies and Anthropology, where she explored the intersectionality of environmental change in marine ecosystems and corresponding human effects within the coastal communities. When she is not working on her research, she enjoys cooking, reading, engaging with the community and exploring the Pacific Northwest with her Great Pyrenees puppy. She is currently a Regional Engagement Fellow at COMPASS.
