Dr Rosanna Carver
Rosanna recently completed her PhD and is currently teaching Political Ecology at Lancaster University. Her thesis focused on the blue economy, exploring issues of resource sovereignty in the context of marine phosphate mining in Namibia. This work drew on fieldwork in Namibia and South Africa. She has published work on the blue economy and seabed mining. She is particularly interested in how sovereignty over resources is complicated by the (geo)physical characteristics of the seabed and how DSM is discussed in relation to the blue economy agenda.
