Education

Professional and Research Interests

Charlotte is finishing her PhD in marine biology at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. “I have always been fascinated by the unique adaptations of marine organisms to their environments, and coastal communities’ response to fluctuations in the marine resources they rely on,” she said. Charlotte is interested in public policy as well. She plans to continue to work with regional partners on resource management concerns and would like to become a marine scientist who is a liaison to managers and policy-makers. “These skills would be beneficial to me as I continue to work toward my career goal of developing multidisciplinary research alongside industry, community, and resource partners,” Charlotte said.
