Drawing on concepts from political economy and science and technology studies, Jens’ research interrogates the ideas, institutions and networks that underpin fisheries management and biodiversity finance. His PhD research seeks to understand the drivers of the Blue Economy and how financial innovation in the Blue Economy aims at realising the triple bottom line: social, economic and environmental sustainability. He has formerly been engaged with research on fisheries management and labour markets in Nordic fisheries, which compared experiences in the Nordic countries and highlighted how market-based governance has changed Nordic fisheries.
