Kendall Harris joined SFEI’s Resilient Landscapes program as an Associate Environmental Scientist in 2021. She enjoys using GIS and remote sensing tools to advance current knowledge of wetland ecosystems, landscape ecology, and climate change. She earned her Master of Landscape Architecture with a focus in Environmental Planning from UC Berkeley where she used remote sensing tools to study restoration impacts to wetland ecosystems within the Louisiana Delta. Prior to graduate school, Kendall worked as a field ecologist with the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) in Tucson and as a field technician for the Forest Service at Lake Tahoe. Her interest in wetlands began with a two-year research program with the US Environmental Protection Agency focused on the National Wetland Condition Assessment. Kendall holds a BS in Biology from Sweet Briar College.
