EMMS student Guillermo Ortuno Crespo carried out his undergraduate project under the supervision of Dr. James Kraska, aiming to address some of the fundamental questions about the scope of authority of coastal states to regulate marine scientific research – involving the use of remote data-collection technologies, and in particular bio-logging of marine migratory species – in the waters under their jurisdiction. This resulted in a publication, a St Andrews seminar and at a well-received contribution by Guillermo at a workshop at the University of Hawaii School of Law in December 2014.
