Darcy is a marine ecologist and Co-Director of the Sustainable Fisheries Group. Her research aims to find solutions for conservation problems facing predator populations in marine ecosystems. In her work, she uses a combination of field surveys, experiments, big data and emerging data collection technologies, and spatially and temporally explicit analytical tools to understand how animal movement affects the management of highly migratory marine species. She has previously worked for non-profit organizations as a research technician and postdoctoral researcher and continues to collaborate with NGOs, government agencies, and multi-disciplinary academic teams to ensure real world impact from her research program. Darcy earned a BA from Princeton and a PhD in Environmental Science and Management from UC Santa Barbara.
