Stephanie Green is a David H. Smith Conservation Research Fellow at Oregon State University, where she leads international research in to the ecology and conservation of marine ecosystems. Dr. Green received her BSc in Ecology and Environmental Science from the University of British Columbia and her PhD from Simon Fraser University, where she received the NSERC Alexander Graham Bell Scholarship for her dissertation research on the effects of predation by invasive Indo-Pacific lionfish on Caribbean coral reef fish communities. She is also an affiliate Scientist with the Reef Environmental Education Foundation, where she designs and leads trainings in marine science and management with international government agencies, conservation groups.
Dr. Green’s research and teaching has taken her to more than 20 countries bordering the Pacific, Atlantic, and Arctic Oceans. Recent projects include studying the effects of energy development in Pacific Northwest coastal ecosystems and invasive species in deep sea fish communities off South Florida, and the impact of fisheries, coastal development, and invasion on endemic marine species in Belize. Dr. Green brings her experience teaching in diverse locations—from Marine Biology in the Canadian Arctic to Coral Reef Ecology in the Caribbean—to crafting courses that highlight key concepts through the lens of local biology and culture. When she is not at the computer, Dr. Green is happy to be scuba diving, hiking, snowboarding, or gardening.
