Science for Coastal Sustainability

We are a group of applied scientists that believe collaborative transdisciplinary thinking is necessary to solve complex problems. Our research uses a combination of field experiments, modeling, and synthesis to examine how coastal and fisheries management influence ecological dynamics, and in turn, social relationships and outcomes. We currently work in a wide variety of coastal environments including oyster and coral reefs, salt marshes, kelp forests, and deep-water reef systems. Ultimately our goal is to provide data that contributes to sustainable coastal ecosystems and communities.
