SFEI is pleased to welcome Dr. Letitia Grenier, who joined the Institute in January to co-lead (with Robin Grossinger) the Resilient Landscapes Program. Letitia is the science lead for the 2015 update to the Baylands Ecosystem Habitat Goals (a California Coastal Conservancy project), heading a team of over 200 environmental scientists, managers, and regulators to develop science-based recommendations for restoring and maintaining the health the Bay's tidal wetlands in the face of rising sea levels and other stressors. Letitia holds a PhD in Conservation Biology from the University of California at Berkeley and previously worked at SFEI from 2004-2012, investigating bioaccumulation of contaminants in estuarine food webs, the condition of California’s wetlands, and other ecological questions about the Bay. She is excited to continue working with partners to conserve California's living resources by focusing on landscape-scale, collaborative, science-based visions and solutions.
