Anna focuses on coordination and data management for the System-Wide Monitoring Program and also works on a range of research projects in San Francisco Bay. She completed both her B.S. and MSc in Ecology at University of California Davis, working out of UCD’s Bodega Marine Laboratory. Her thesis focused on variation in native bivalve patterns in rocky intertidal communities along estuarine gradients. Since then, she has worked in a variety of California estuaries studying invertebrate and fish communities and water quality. She is especially interested in ecological research that is strongly linked with management needs, and enjoys connecting with the outdoors through her work.
