Dr. Mika Schröder
Post-doctoral Research Associate in Marine Policy and Management
Mika Schröder has joined the Marine Planning Team at Shetland UHI as a post-doc researcher on the Diverse Marine Values project.
Mika’s background is in environmental law and governance, with a particular focus on environmental justice. She has a keen interest in inclusive governance and processes for ensuring that diverse relationships, knowledges and perspectives can help shape decision-making in environmental governance.
Prior to joining the team in Shetland, Mika completed her PhD at Strathclyde Uni, where she looked at whether and how local actor participation at international biodiversity negotiations enabled those processes to embrace and accommodate local perspectives.
When not working she can often be found outside climbing, running, swimming or cycling, often accompanied by her pup Kai.
