Stanford Liaison From 2013-2015slewis13@stanford.edu

Staci is an interdisciplinary Ph.D. student characterizing impacts of land-use on coral reef systems in two watersheds systems in the Republic of Palau. She also works with Palauan partners to assess governance mechanisms for effective watershed management solutions. Prior to Stanford, Staci worked for seven years as a ocean policy advisor in various capacities in Washington, D.C.  She has a Masters in environmental science and policy from George Mason University. Prior to her time in the D.C. area, Staci was a Fulbright Fellow in Barbados where she researched the impacts of coral degradation on the feeding behavior of the coral-eating polychaete Hermodice carunculata. Barbados was Staci's first brush with the ocean policy arena where she worked with national marine reserve officials to bolster educational awareness campaigns. She hopes to leave Stanford with enhanced experiences in applying science to mitigate local stressors to coral reef systems.

MLML Liaison From 2013-2015fennieh@oregonstate.edu

Will completed his master's at Moss Landing Marine Labs in Scott Hamilton's lab. His master's research focused on the effects of elevated CO2 on the behavior and swimming physiology of juvenile rockfishes. Will is now pursuing a PhD at Oregon State University in Su Sponaugle's lab. He is trying to understand how oceanographic conditions rockfish experience during their pelagic larval and juvenile phases affect post settlement mortality. He is also interested in how marine reserves affect post settlement processes of juvenile rockfishes.

Stanford Liaison From 2010-2014d2r@stanford.edu

I study the human dimensions of ocean and coastal management using interdisciplinary methods, including citizen science. My goal is to engage communities in understanding and sustainably managing their coastal resources. Currently, I am a postdoctoral scholar at the Bill Lane Center for the American West at Stanford University.
