Congratulations to Dr. Becca Selden, New Faculty at Wellesley College!

Becca will be joining the faculty as an assistant professor of marine biology at Wellesley College, a premier liberal arts college in Massachusetts, in September. Wellesley has a strong commitment to undergraduate research, and she hopes to launch the careers of the next generation of women scientists. Her research program will investigate the cumulative impacts of harvest, climate change, and species invasion on marine ecosystems, utilizing the Gulf of Maine as a key local study system in addition to her regional and global efforts using quantitative tools. She looks forward to continuing her collaborative work with NOAA colleagues at NEFSC, and intends to engage with policymakers on issues of conservation and fisheries management relevant to Northeast coastal ecosystems.

Congratulations, Becca!
