I have background in marine spatial ecology. Prior to founding the environmental data science consultancy EcoQuants, I lectured at UC Santa Barbara’s Bren School of Environmental Science & Management (see Training) and was the senior analyst for the Ocean Health Index, a research project housed at the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis. In 2016, I completed a PhD at Duke University’s Marine Geospatial Ecology Lab. There I worked on Marine Geospatial Ecology Tools, OBIS-SEAMAP marine animal observation geoportal, Census of Marine Life Map & Viz and predictive distribution modeling of cetaceans.
