Sarah M. Roberts

Marine Spatial Ecologist

About me

I am currently a PhD candidate in Marine Science and Conservation at the Duke University Marine Geospatial Ecology Lab, where I am advised by Dr. Patrick Halpin. From 2017-2019 I was a Nereus fellow, funded by the Nippon Foundation. I received a Masters of Environmental Management in Coastal Environmental Management from Duke University and a Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Studies and Hispanic Studies from Davidson College. I am passionate about using geospatial analysis to solve complicated marine issues from fisheries in a changing climate to marine protected area designations. My research focuses on marine species distributions and community ecologies in a changing climate.
