Ellen Willis-Norton

Ellen is interested in how U.S. West Coast marine ecosystems (California Current System, Gulf of Alaska, and Eastern Bering Sea) are responding to climate change. Her research currently focuses on 1) assessing the vulnerability of west coast fisheries to climate change, 2) potential predator/prey mismatches with climate change, and 3) whether certain management tools can increase species’ resilience to a changing climate.

At UC Santa Cruz she is co-advised by Dr. Mark Carr, an ecologist researching the population and community ecology of coastal marine fishes, and Dr. Elliott Hazen, a National Marine Fisheries Scientist researching the effect of climate change on biodiversity and predator-prey spatial dynamics.
