Allison Dedrick (she/her) is a postdoc working with the Palau team to understand how we might expect populations and ecosystems to respond to large-scale marine protected areas. Her past work has broadly focused on marine population dynamics and connectivity in the context of management and environmental change.
Allison received a B.S. in Earth Systems from Stanford and a PhD in Ecology from UC Davis, where her dissertation focused on the response of marine invertebrate populations to climate change and portfolio effect dynamics in hatchery-supplemented California Chinook salmon. After graduate school, she did a postdoc at Rutgers studying metapopulation persistence in clownfish on patch reefs in the Philippines.
