Dr. Alexandra Davis
Alex is a marine spatial ecologist and an advocate for equity and diversity in conservation sciences. She is currently a Liber Ero Postdoctoral Fellow developing conservation strategies for interventions of marine and aquatic invasive species. She works with multiple partners and management agencies to quantify valued ecological and socio-economic resources, develop spatially explicit priority locations, and quantify the economic costs for managing invasive species. Her current study species include the Indo-Pacific lionfish in US Caribbean and Tropical Western Atlantic territories, and the European Green Crab in British Columbia and the Salish Sea.
In addition to her work in academia she currently serves on multiple Equity, Diversity, Justice, and Inclusion (EDJI) committees and is a member of the board of directors for Black Women in Ecology Evolution and Marine Science (BWEEMS). Her work within these groups is aimed towards elevating marginalized voices in STEM and providing mentorship, professional development, and opportunities for success in the STEM fields.
