Coastal Resilience Collaboration Team Announces New Leadership
We are happy to introduce two new team leaders for the Coastal Resilience Collaboration Team (). Learn more about them below!
@Christina Bonsell - I am a marine ecologist with the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management. I have 8 years of experience conducting and coordinating research in the Arctic, including studies on Arctic kelp beds and Beaufort Sea lagoons. Additionally, I have experience in planning and implementing community engagement and K-12 outreach activities on the North Slope. These days, outside of work, you can find me trying to not fall down while learning how to ski.
@Tahzay Jones - I study coastal ecology and lead the National Park Service Oceans and Coastal Program. I have 15 years monitoring program development and implementation planning, co-authored the Arctic lagoon monitoring protocol for the Inventory and Monitoring program, and am currently conducting studies on nearshore coastal systems in Alaska's northwest Arctic. I also represent the US as a co-chair on the --Coastal Steering Group (Arctic Council).
Please join us in welcoming Christina and Tahzay!
We would also like to thank @John Pearce and @Colleen Strawhacker for their excellent leadership of the over the last several years. They worked to develop an inclusive community of practice that explored progressive ideas around coastal resilience research.
