Lucie Hazen joined the Stanford Center for Ocean Solutions in February 2011 as a research analyst. To date, she has focused on coordinating interdisciplinary working groups and co-organized the Stanford Center for Ocean Solutions' Ocean Policy course in summer 2011. Current working groups are synthesizing available research and examining effects of climate change on coral reefs, climate change on pelagic predators and coastal hypoxia in the California Current Large Marine Ecosystem. Ultimately, the working groups will offer policy recommendations for successful management of critical ecosystem services.
Before joining the center, Lucie managed several marine research and conservation projects with policy applications at Duke University Marine Lab. In her six years at Duke, she served as a liaison between principal investigators, research scientists, administrators, subcontractors and funders. With experience in project management and oversight, including monitoring budgets and milestones, coordinating team research goals, leading reporting efforts, facilitating communications, and organizing symposia and stakeholder meetings, she brings a strong skill set to support COS's goals and initiatives.
Lucie received a B.S. in biology from the University of Washington, where she also earned a M.S. from the School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences. Her academic background is in ecology and fisheries biology, and she has extensive experience in field research and project management.
