Esteban Arenas is a fisheries analyst focusing on Latin America. He’s interested in the application of data and technology for the sustainable use of our natural resources. Furthermore, he enjoys graphic design and thinks presenting analytical results in visual, user-friendly interfaces, is key to them being understood and incorporated in management decisions.
Esteban studied economics and environmental studies at Vassar College and has a Masters in Environmental Management focused on fisheries from Duke University. Previous to Global Fishing Watch, he worked for World Wildlife Fund in Mexico, collaborating with NGOs, governments and the private sector to increase corporate demand of traceable sustainably certified seafood products.
Beyond coding and analysis, Esteban enjoys employing problem solving and creative skills to rock climbing, video games, playing cello, and trying new things. He looks forward to applying emerging technologies towards a more efficient and sustainable use of our resources.
