Sally Yozell is a Senior Fellow and Director of the Environmental Security Program at The Stimson Center. Her research examines environmental factors that have the potential to undermine the security of individuals, communities and nations across the globe. Yozell and her team explore the links between natural resources protection, environmental crime, and global security issues to develop security strategies that combat illegal, unreported, and unregulated (IUU) fishing, thwart illicit wildlife networks, and increase transparency and traceability throughout the seafood supply chain. She also devises innovative climate resiliency strategies to address climate and ocean risk, particularly in coastal cities. Prior to joining Stimson, Yozell served as a Senior Advisor to the U.S. Secretary of State and was the Director of Policy and Deputy Assistant Secretary at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Ms. Yozell led marine programs at The Nature Conservancy and Battelle Memorial Institute. She holds an MPA from Harvard University.
