I’ve had the opportunity to work with lots of amazing folks in ecology and other related fields. Here are a few of them.

Smithsonian Institution 

At the Smithsonian I have worked directly with the Tennenbaum Marine Observatories Network on the MarineGEO program, a collaborative, global effort to monitor and investigate biodiversity in coastal waters.

J. Emmett Duffy – Director, Tennenbaum Marine Observatories Network

Matthieu Leray – Post-doctoral Fellow, Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute

Brian Cheng – Assistant Faculty, UMass Amherst

Erica Staaterman – Bureau of Ocean Energy Management

Reef Life Survey – University of Tasmania/Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies

The MarineGEO project has partnered with Reef Life Survey to further develop a network of marine community surveyors that has to date conducted more than 9000 individual surveys.

Hakai Institute

To quantify the impact of repatriated sea otters on kelp forest and seagrass systems, I worked with researchers at the Hakai Institute in British Columbia.

Jenn Burt – PhD researcher, Simon Fraser University

Kira Krumhansl – PhD researcher, Simon Fraser University

Margot Hessing-Lewis – Lead Scientist, Hakai Institute

University of British Columbia

As part of my graduate studies, I conducted field work out the Bamfield Marine Sciences Centre with Mary O’Connor and her lab to describe invertebrate communities in seagrass meadows of British Columbia.

Friday Harbor Labs

At Friday Harbor Labs I worked primarily on subtidal community ecology with a focus on limiting resources, algal subsidies, and sea urchin behavior.
