Emily is a research technician in the Aquarium-MBARI Incubator Initiative program, with the Environmental Sample Processor (ESP) team. Emily’s research focuses on understanding species responses to dynamic environmental processes over space and time. Emily holds a Ph.D. in ecology from the University of California, Davis, a master’s degree in conservation biology from Columbia University, and a bachelor’s degree in integrative biology from the University of California, Berkeley. Her dissertation research examined movements of green and white sturgeon using acoustic telemetry and stable isotope analyses. Prior to joining MBARI, Emily worked as an assistant research scientist on the fisheries team in the Conservation Research Department at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. In that position she studied historical harvests of sea turtles in relation to illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing, the use of marine macroalgae herbarium collections as ocean record keepers, disease in captive scombrids, and steelhead ocean movement ecology.
