Dr. Lauren Yeager is an ecologist whose primary research interests lie in understanding how humans are impacting coastal and marine ecosystems, and subsequently how changes in these systems may affect the ecosystem services they provide—specifically, human alterations to coastal landscapes and changes in biodiversity associated with overharvest may drastically alter the structure and function of marine communities. Before joining SESYNC, Lauren was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill were she studied how fragmentation and habitat loss of seagrass habitat could lead to declines in fish biodiversity. Similarly, her dissertation research at Florida International University focused on how landscape changes could affect the functioning of coral reef and estuarine ecosystems in The Bahamas and Florida.
