Her research examines the co-production of science and regulation in the West Coast commercial fisheries, and the social and political impacts of new scientific and monitoring technologies on commercial fisherman. Lauren also works at the nexus of digital humanities and science communications to understand how conservation discourse is produced and circulated on the web through social media and emerging practices of geospatial digital storytelling and carto-visual narrative.
