SHELBY L. ZIEGLER, Ph.D.
PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR

Dr. Shelby Ziegler is an incoming Assistant Professor of Ecology in the Biology Department at Villanova University. She completed her B.S. in Biology College of William and Mary and Ph.D. in Ecology at UNC Chapel Hill (UNC Institute of Marine Sciences). She is an ecologist conducting interdisciplinary research that investigates environmental variation and anthropogenic stressors on faunal communities in marine and aquatic systems. Her work spans across multiple levels of biological organization from cells and organisms to communities and ecosystems using a combination of field sampling, laboratory experiments, molecular techniques, satellite-derived data, and geospatial analysis to test questions related to the conservation of aquatic and marine systems.

JOIN US!

The Coastal Ecology and Conservation Lab at Villanova University will be opening in Fall 2024!

We will be recruiting Master's students to join the lab in Fall 2025

We also welcome undergraduate students at Villanova with strong desire to learn more about coastal and estuarine ecology and gain experience in lab and field settings.
