Anne Salomon, Simon Fraser University, Tipping points and transformation in coupled human-ocean systems

I am an applied marine ecologist and associate professor at Simon Fraser University’s School of Resource and Environmental Management. My research is motivated by a deep interest in understanding how human activities alter the productivity, biodiversity and resilience of coastal marine food webs with the ultimate goal of informing ecosystem approaches to marine conservation. Broadly, my students and I study the cascading effects of predator depletion, marine spatial planning and ecosystem-based management, and the dynamics of coupled human-ocean systems. Ultimately, I strive to engage coastal communities and government agencies in collaborative research and encourage constructive dialogue between them to design effective marine policies that balance the needs of people and nature.
