Natalie Rossi( She/Her/Hers )
During my BS in marine biology at UC Santa Cruz, I aided in the monitoring effort of restored eelgrass beds in Elkhorn Slough including analyzing carbon stocks of these beds. After receiving my degree, I worked as a lead field technician in Elkhorn Slough for two separate experiments. I have also spent the past two years working as a naturalist in Elkhorn Slough, honing my science communication skills. In my time at the IMES program, I will work with the eelgrass beds in San Francisco Bay and aid in our further understanding of eelgrass restoration. I am working with Dr. Kathy Boyer.
