Laura McDonnell

Interdisciplinary Biologist, PhD Candidate

NSERC Fellow, UM Fellow


I am broadly interested in collaborative research on climate change & variability in aquatic systems and the impacts they have on fish and human users of the marine environment. 

My doctoral project adopts an interdisciplinary approach to examine how sharks' tag-collected data can be integrated into ocean observation, climate models, and dynamic spatial management efforts.

Currently, I am a member of the University of Miami-based Climate Risks and Preparedness research group. 

In Fall 2023, I will be joining the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution as a Postdoctoral Scholar.
