Science Director, Cook Inletkeeper
Alaska, United States
Sue has been studying impacts of climate and land-use change in Alaska’s wild salmon streams for 17 years. She coordinates regional water temperature data collecting networks with diverse partners and uses thermal infrared imagery to map cold water habitat, which is critical for the persistence of salmon during this time of rapid change. Sue is interested in research that can be applied to decision making and public policy, and strives to connect people through stories informed by science to reach common goals.
