Lindsey Peavey

Research Specialist

Lindsey joined the CINMS staff in 2016, bringing a diverse background spanning marine ecology, conservation, cumulative impacts assessment, and biogeography to the Research Team. After earning a B.S. in marine science from the University of Miami, FL, Lindsey worked in cross-border community-based marine conservation for six years in Southern California and Northwest Mexico. Lindsey's graduate research focused on the ecology of large marine vertebrates�marine mammals, sea turtles, birds, and fish�that migrate long distances to feed and breed. After completing a master's degree at Duke University and a Ph.D. at UC Santa Barbara, both in Environmental Science & Management, Lindsey worked on advancing dynamic ocean management with the Southwest Fisheries Science Center as a California Sea Grant Fellow. At the sanctuary, Lindsey helps identify and describe the multiple natural and anthropogenic pressures that threaten marine resources, and collaborates with academics and stakeholders to produce and synthesize information that informs management approaches. She uses non-invasive, integrative approaches including passive acoustics, telemetry, biogeochemistry, genetics, habitat modeling, and spatial analysis to study animal behavior and food web interactions. Lindsey's first love is basketball but she also enjoys paddling outrigger and stand-up, running, hiking, yoga, photography, and traveling.
