Resilient Landscapes Program
Gwen Miller joined the Resilient Landscapes program at SFEI in 2022 as a Tidal Wetland Ecologist. She has a BS from UC Davis in Environmental Resource Science with a focus in hydrobiology. Her MS in Coastal and Watershed Science and Policy is from Cal State Monterey Bay where she researched how constructed wetlands can improve water quality within a polluted water body, and how this changes seasonally. She went on to get a PhD in Marine Science studying coastal wetlands in South Carolina. Her research there analyzed how wetlands have already, are, and potentially will respond to climate change. Much of her work included remote sensing, laboratory and field work, and environmental modeling. After her PhD she returned to California and worked as a postdoctoral scholar at UC Berkeley determining plant phenology within tidal wetlands within the SF Bay area using satellite data.
