Lizzie Duncan

Sarah Amiri

Research Dept Intern

Elizabeth (Lizzie) Duncan joined the CINMS research team as a 2017 California Sea Grant State Fellow. During the course of her one-year fellowship Lizzie will help see the sanctuary Condition Report through its final stages, identify future research needs based on this report, identify and quantify the various ecosystem services the sanctuary provides to stakeholders, and assist the CINMS in fulfilling its science, education, conservation, and stewardship goals. Just before joining CINMS, Lizzie completed her Master of Science degree in Biology from California State University, Long Beach. However, it was as an undergraduate at Long Beach State where she discovered her interest in the intersection of science and policy while interning for NOAA's Montrose Settlements and Restoration Program as Outreach Coordinator. As a graduate student, she was awarded the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship (NSF GRF) and the NSF East Asia and Pacific Summer Institutes Fellowship (EAPSI) for U.S. graduate students to study the responses of valuable marine species to anthropogenic-induced changes to the environment.
