Curriculum Vitae

Research Interests: Pelagic ecology, Endangered species management, Biologging, Stable Isotope Ecology.

Lindsey with a juvenile olive ridley sea turtle in the eastern tropical Pacific. NOAA NMFS SWFSC Permit #774-1714.

My dissertation work focuses on the pelagic ecology of olive ridley sea turtles, mainly their habitat use and open-ocean foraging strategies, to inform management (e.g. fisheries bycatch reduction).  More generally, I study the ecology of large marine vertebrates (mammals, turtles, birds) and work to apply that knowledge to find a balance between human resource use and species conservation.

When I'm not working I like to hike, paddleboard, play basketball, cook, take photos, and explore new places.
