We are excited to announce that our lab, along with the research lab of Sean Craig from the Biology department, are going to be part of a large NSF project led by Marissa Baskett of UC Davis to explore the social-ecological system connect to kelp ecosystems in Northern California. The HD lab will contribute to gathering information related to the socioeconomic systems connected to kelp. New graduate student Jocelyn Enevoldsen will be working as a part of that project. Press release is here.
It was announced last fall that Dr. Richmond will be joining ESM Faculty Member Jennifer Marlow from HSU to participate in five year NSF funded project led by Oregon State University and University of Washington to conduct research related to coastal resilience. The grant will include funding for four graduate students, four undergraduate researchers, and for community partners. LINK
