Katie Chartrand

Senior Research Scientist - Seagrass Ecology
MSc, University of North Carolina Wilmington, Wilmington NC USA (2007); BSc, Biology, St Louis University, St Louis MO USA (2003)

Katie’s research broadly focuses on the ecology and photobiology of tropical marine macrophytes in coastal habitats at risk from development. She is interested in how photosynthetic processes dictate the success of marine plants and how this impacts the habitat at a broader scale. Using fine-scale fluorometric technology together with field-based rapid-assessment techniques provides a better understanding of impacts from environmental threats.
