Resilient Landscapes Program
Erica received her PhD from UC Berkeley in the Environmental Science, Policy & Management department, and most recently has worked as a postdoctoral researcher with Katie Suding on mechanisms of resilience in California grasslands. She studied the seed dispersal of invasive plants by birds in Tahiti (French Polynesia) for her dissertation. Erica also has worked for the Wildlife Conservation Society in Central Africa, worked in West Africa in the Peace Corps, and was a research assistant in Costa Rica.
She'll be working on a number of Resilient Landscapes projects, including Resilient Silicon Valley, the Southern California wetlands strategy, and the Delta historical visualization project.
