Research Interests

As well as tackling research on pressing ocean concerns, Dr. Vincent also mobilizes conservation action to improve the status of marine species and habitats. She is actively involved in biological and social research, empowering local communities, establishing marine protected areas, managing small-scale fisheries, restructuring international trade, promoting integrated policy, and advancing environmental understanding. Using the quirky seahorses as her flagship animals, Dr. Vincent has managed to effect measurable gains in ocean conservation. She serves as the Chair of the global expert group on these fishes, among other international roles. New priorities include supporting front line conservationists in developing countries, addressing annihilation trawling and turning citizen scientists into citizen conservationists.
