Natalie Dixon is a first year MEM Environmental Economics & Policy student. She graduated in 2020 from American University with a double major in international relations and economics. Natalie is also on the cabinet of the student club Ocean Policy Working Group, is completing an assistantship with the Nicholas School admissions office, and is doing research assistant work for Duke Law professor Lee Miller. Being from the coast in southern California, Natalie has been motivated by first-hand experience to get into coastal conservation and resilience work. She plans to go into a career in policy advocacy in the ocean space, specifically with an organization that uses economic valuation to advocate for marine ecosystem conservation.
