Dr. Webster's main research interest is in understanding feedbacks within global scale social-ecological systems (SESs). She is author of two books, Beyond the Tragedy in Global Fisheries (2017) and Adaptive Governance: The Dynamics of Atlantic Tuna Management (2009), which won the International Studies Association's Harold and Margaret Sprout Award in 2010. She is currently exploring new methods for exploring SESs as the lead PI on a multi-institutional project called Fishscape: Modeling the Complex Dynamics of the Fishery for Tropical Tunas in the Eastern Pacific Ocean, which is funded through NSF’s Coupled Natural and Human Systems program, and an internally funded project that uses agent based modeling to better understand the relationship between Consumer Choice and Sustainability. Dr. Webster teaches courses related to global environmental governance, green business, marine policy, and environmental economics. She earned her PhD from the University of Southern California’s Political Economy and Public Policy program in 2005. Prof. Webster is currently involved in active South African fisheries research.
