The Kelly research group has its home within the University of Washington's School of Marine and Environmental Affairs. Through collaborations with researchers in a variety of units in the College of the Environment at UW, NOAA, and elsewhere, we do quantitative and qualitative research at the boundaries of marine science, law, and policy.
