Chris Caldow has been with NOAA since 2000 when he became a Knauss Marine Policy Fellow with the National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science's (NCCOS) Biogeography Branch at NOAA Headquarters, a unit specializing in mapping the distributions of marine plants and animals to aid decision makers faced with spatially explicit management decisions. In 2005, Chris led the Branch's efforts to produce a report entitled "A biogeographic assessment of the Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary and surrounding areas: a review of boundary expansion alternatives for NOAA's National Marine Sanctuary Program." Chris subsequently became Chief of the Biogeography Branch, where he remained until coming west in July 2014 and taking on the role of Research Coordinator at Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary. Chris obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Aquatic Biology from the University of California, Santa Barbara in 1996 and a Master of Science degree in Biology from the University of Houston in 2000 where he focused on understanding early life history of reef fish, marine protected area science, and climate change.
