Zoë Kitchel, René Clark, and Lisa McManus joined this fall as new PhD students (Zoë and René) and as a new postdoc (Lisa). We’re excited to welcome them on board! Zoë’s interests are on the impacts of climate change and variability on marine ecosystems and will joining our NSF Coupled Natural Human (CNH) systems project in the California Current. René is fascinated by conservation genetics and will likely help with our NSF PIRE project examining century-scale genomic changes in heavily exploited marine fishes. Lisa is working on eco-evolutionary models for coral reefs, in collaboration with Daniel Schindler (U. Washington) and the Coral Reef Alliance.
