Melissa Errend is serving her Knauss fellowship as a Legislative Fellow in U.S. Senator Maria Cantwell’s office. As a 2012 Summer Scholar, she worked with Oregon Sea Grant on marine science and policy event planning. She helped plan the Heceta Head Coastal Conferences and other events such as a Marine Economics workshop.
Melissa completed her B.S. in Marine Biology in 2012 and her M.S. in Marine Resource Management in 2015, both at Oregon State University.
Melissa is committed to developing an interdisciplinary fluency to inform effective and innovative coastal management. Her graduate research combined economic and ecological theory in a framework for improving data-limited ecosystem service assessments. Her research applied this framework to models which link fisheries production to habitats that fishery species rely on for food and refuge.
