Megan Mach joined COS in January 2013 as an early career fellow working on integrating science and management towards improved methods for ecosystem-based management in marine systems.
Megan received a Ph.D. from the University of British Columbia's (UBC) Institute for Resources, Environment and Sustainability focused on marine ecosystem-based management and impacts of exotic species invasions. She also holds a master’s degree from Boston University in biology with a focus on marine population genetics and a bachelor’s from University of Washington in biology.
After completing her Ph.D., she worked as a planner with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (Canada) to help develop and test a cumulative risk assessment framework for the Pacific North Coast Integrated Management Area (PNCIMA). She was also a postdoctoral research fellow for Dr. Kai Chan at the University of British Columbia working on cumulative impacts to ecosystem services on a project funded by the David and Lucille Packard Foundation.
