Principal Scientist, Estuary Technical Group, Institute for Applied Ecology
Roger Fuller is an ecosystems ecologist and spatial project manager, focused on understanding the interaction among physical and biological components of ecosystems. He studies how coastal and floodplain systems respond to change, such as restoration, climate change, and watershed land-use practices. The connections between humans and ecosystems are a particular interest. In addition to original research, Roger works with the Huxley Spatial Institute on science communication, translating data into interactive visual formats for partners, community members and decision-makers. For 12 years, Roger was the lead scientist for The Nature Conservancy’s Puget Sound program where he guided the development of restoration, protection and stewardship projects, as well as leading efforts in research and digital tool development.
