Chante Davis, 2018 Knauss Fellow

Program: John D. Knauss Marine Policy Fellowship (2018)


Chante Davis is serving her Knauss fellowship as an Executive Fellow in the NOAA Fisheries office of sustainable fisheries with the Highly Migratory Species Management team.


Chante completed a B.S. in Earth Systems Science and Policy from California State Universities at Monterey Bay, a M.S. in Marine Science from Moss Landing Marine Laboratories and a PhD in Fisheries and Wildlife from Oregon State University.

Professional and Research Interests: 

Chante is interested in the ecology and evolution of life history traits and how these factors shape population structure and growth. Her PhD dissertation focused on how migratory fish responded to environmental change, using molecular and ecological tools. However, previous work included understanding the biology of deep sea skates in the eastern North Pacific.
