As of February 1st, 2013 Megan is starting as an Early Career Fellow at the Center for Ocean Solutions, Stanford University.
Previously a Postdoctoral Research Associate and Ph.D. student at the University of British Columbia in the Institute for Resources, Environment and Sustainability (IRES), Department of Resource Management and Environmental Studies (RMES)
Ph.D. Supervisors: Kai M. A. Chan (RMES, UBC) and Colin D. Levings (DFO)
For the last 5 years I have investigated the response of Salish Sea estuaries to the stressors of exotic species through field-based analyses and theoretical models. This has led to my interest in the development of adaptive management strategies in which 1) science is used directly by managers to revise, inform and assess decision-making and 2) managers and scientists co-develop applicable scientific research, motivated by outcomes and revised ecological and social value objectives.
