PhD, Marine Scientist

 
 

About me

I'm Carter Smith, a postdoc in the Silliman Lab. I am an interdisciplinary marine conservation scientist working to understand how we can use novel coastal habitat restoration schemes to improve coastal sustainability and resilience. My interests lie at the intersection of multiple disciplines including conservation and restoration science, community ecology, and the social sciences. Broadly, my research focuses on understanding how socio-ecological processes impact restoration success, coastal resilience, and the delivery of ecosystem services, particularly in the context of a rapidly changing world. My research is applied and solutions oriented, and I am passionate about working directly with coastal managers and practitioners to ensure that my research is addressing priority management needs. I completed my Ph.D. in Marine Sciences at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill in 2019 and I have a B.A. in Theater Arts from Wesleyan University.  I love nachos.
