Senior Scientist, Oceans program
Suatoni’s work covers a variety of topics, including ocean acidification, sustainable fisheries management, and marine ecosystem–based management. Her research initially focused on marine ecology and molecular evolution; more recently, however, the bulk of her work involves the intersection of science and public policy, as they both apply to ocean conservation. She is the Timothy B. Atkeson Visiting Clinical Environmental Lecturer in Law at Yale Law School, where she also codirects the Yale Environmental Protection Clinic. She holds a master’s in environmental policy from the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies and a PhD in ecology and evolutionary biology from Yale University. She is based in New York City.
