Danielle Haulsee's interests include combining innovative technology and oceanographic remote sensing techniques with the biogeography and movement of marine species. She received her B.S. in Environmental Science from Gettysburg College in 2010 and her Ph.D. from the University of Delaware in 2017. At the University of Delaware she worked as a Ph.D. student and post-doctoral researcher with Dr. Matthew Oliver in the ORB Lab, focusing her research on threatened Sand Tiger sharks and endangered Atlantic Sturgeon. She used statistical models to quantify the habitat preferences, migratory behavior, and social dynamics of these species of interest. She has joined the Crowder Lab to work on a project tagging and tracking billfish off the coast of Costa Rica, Project DynaMAR [www.projectdynamar.com]. Danielle will combine billfish locations from satellite tags with remotely sensed and modeled oceanographic data to predict billfish distribution in a changing climate.

Natasha Hardy is a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Alberta and associate of the Crowder Lab at Hopkins Marine Station. Natasha’s research interests revolve around the ecology and conservation of large aquatic predators, of interrelated ecosystem processes and how these are impacted by humans, and environmental change. She has worked on projects that range from planktonic organisms to fish and seals in her native southeastern Australia, where she obtained her Bachelor of Science with Honours, and her Ph.D in 2018 from the University of Sydney, working with Associate Prof. Will Figueira on the ecological interactions of recolonizing populations of fur seals and temperate reef communities in southeastern Australia. Natasha has joined Assistant Prof. Stephanie Green (UAlb) and Prof. Larry Crowder in collaboration with NOAA Southwest Fisheries Science Center to work on large pelagic predators and marine food web dynamics under climate change in the California Current Large Marine Ecosystem.
