Professional and Research Interests
Sarah expects to complete requirements for an MS in fisheries science at the University of Alaska Fairbanks in summer 2016. Her current research interests include the arctic marine environment and how climate change and increasing human activity will impact fish and the greater arctic ecosystem. “By working with the National Park Service, I will get exposure to a wide array of habitat types and management issues,” she said. Sarah is interested to see how NPS utilizes science to preserve and manage the parks’ many natural resources and educate the public.
