Pedro FidelmanI am an Australia-based scholar in the field of environmental social science with a particular interest in policy, institutions and management in the context of environmental governance.

I was born and grew up in Brazil where I received a BSc (Hons I) and MSc. I undertook additional academic training in Australia, where I completed a PhD with a focus on institutional analysis of natural resource management at the University of Wollongong. Since then, I have held academic positions in Brazil and Australia (e.g., Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies and Sustainability Research Centre, University of the Sunshine Coast).

Currently, I am a Senior Research Fellow with the Centre for Policy Futures at the University of Queensland. I am also a Theme Leader (marine and coastal governance) for Australia’s Centre for Marine Socioecology and Adjunct Senior Fellow with the Sustainability Research Centre. Further, I serve as a Senior Research Fellow for the Earth System Governance Project and Lead Author (Oceans and Coastal Policy) for the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) Global Environment Outlook 6.
