Senior Program Manager, Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission
Dr. Caren Braby provides strategic leadership on all things ‘ocean’ within the state of Oregon and across the West Coast, as the Manager of the Marine Resources Program for the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife. Her work is grounded in both fishery and ecosystem issues, and is directed at facilitating and inspiring stewardship of ocean resources from the estuaries to the high seas. Caren and her staff build partnerships with industry, academic researchers, tribal governments, agencies, stakeholders, and elected officials to collaboratively define, and achieve, both economic and ecosystem resilience. In particular, changing oceans and ocean acidification have become focal points for Caren’s work over the past 5 years.
Caren received a Ph.D. in Biological Sciences from Stanford University in 2004.
