OCEAN SCIENCE FOR HEALTHY ECOSYSTEMS AND COMMUNITIES

Home: Welcome

HI, I'M SARA.

I'm an marine ecologist who studies patterns of ocean change and what it means for the ecosystems and animals that humans depend on. I got my Ph.D. in Integrative Biology at Oregon State University studying kelp forests under Drs. Kirsten Grorud-Colvert and Bruce Menge. I did postdoc research at the University of California - Davis in Dr. Tessa Hill's lab, where I studied spatial patterns in the effects of ocean acidification and hypoxia on commercially important shellfish species. I'm now the Science Coordinator for the Oregon Kelp Alliance, and I am based in Corvallis, Oregon* on the traditional homelands of the Kalapuya peoples. Check out my other pages to learn more about my work and or go to oregonkelp.com to learn more about the work of the Oregon Kelp Alliance. Please feel free to get in touch.

Following the Kalapuya Treaty of 1855, Kalapuya people were forcibly removed to reservations in Western Oregon. Today, living descendants of these people are a part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde Community of Oregon (https://www.grandronde.org) and the Confederated Tribes of the Siletz Indians (https://ctsi.nsn.us).
