Emily is interested in how the interactions between organisms and their environment change over space and time. She especially enjoys research questions that help us understand migration ecology and that inform the conservation of California species and ecosystems. Her tools of choice to answer these questions are biotelemetry and stable isotope ecology. Emily is an Assistant Research Scientist in the Conservation Research Department at Monterey Bay Aquarium, where she has worked for the past two years. In this position, she has worked on several projects studying the historical ecology of sea turtles and marine macroalgae, fish ocean movements, and fisheries. Before joining the Monterey Bay Aquarium, she graduated with a PhD in Ecology from U.C. Davis and a Masters from Columbia University in Conservation Biology. Her dissertation involved tagging and tracking green and white sturgeon in the San Francisco Bay and Sacramento River to examine spatial niche partitioning. Emily is also interested in communicating science to a wide audience though data visualizations and art.
