Dr. Sarah Lester
Research and Professional Interests:
I am an applied marine ecologist focused on addressing questions related to coastal and marine natural resource management and conservation science. Our lab’s research centers around three closely linked themes: 1) spatial approaches to marine conservation, management, and ecosystem restoration, 2) socio-ecological vulnerability of marine systems to global change, and 3) marine aquaculture and sustainable seafood systems. We apply an interdisciplinary lens to our work and utilize field surveys, data analysis and synthesis, and modeling.
