Job Title: Research Scientist

Organization: University of California Santa Barbara

Bio: Carrie is a Research Biologist and Senior Fellow at the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis (NCEAS). Carrie received her PhD from Stanford University. A marine conservation biologist and community ecologist by training, she has worked in coral reefs, kelp forests and rocky intertidal systems and now uses collaborative synthesis science to develop conservation solutions that protect marine ecosystems and enhance human well being. From 2012-2017, Carrie was the lead principal investigator of the Ocean Tipping Points Project, a multi-institution, interdisciplinary collaboration aimed at understanding dramatic, nonlinear change in marine ecosystems and developing practical tools to help ocean and coastal managers avoid or recover from undesirable ecosystem shifts. Carrie serves on the Science for Nature and People Partnership's Science Advisory Council and is a former board member of Ecology Project International and the Teton Science Schools.
