SHELBY ZIEGLER, PhD
I am a community ecologist and conservation biologist working in marine systems. I am currently a Postdoctoral Research Associate at Moss Landing Marine Labs with the Fisheries and Conservation Lab and Ichthyology Lab.
I have a variety of interests that span the realm of community ecology. My current research focuses on how fish communities respond to the implementation of Marine Protected Areas along the California coast and understanding how geographic variation impact the function of coastal habitats for marine species.
I completed my PhD in Ecology at UNC Chapel Hill and UNC Institute of Marine Sciences in the spring of 2020. Prior to graduate school, I received a BS in Biology at the College of William and Mary, and worked as a research technician at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science.
