Erin Beller joined SFEI's Resilient Landscapes team as a historical ecologist in 2006. Her work focuses on documenting how California landscapes and ecosystems have changed over time, and using this information to guide the development of landscape-scale restoration and management strategies across the state. Erin received her B.S. in Geological and Environmental Sciences from Stanford University, where her studies emphasized landscape evolution and environmental history of the Western U.S. Prior to joining SFEI, Erin worked with a statewide environmental nonprofit on water and land use issues, and conducted architectural history research for the History, Architecture, and Landscapes branch of Yosemite National Park.
