Prof. Dr. Isabelle Côté
Professor of Marine Ecology, Department of Biological Sciences, Simon Fraser University, CANADA
Isabelle Côté is a professor of Marine Ecology in the Department of Biological Sciences at Simon Fraser University, on the west coast of Canada. Her interests in marine ecology and conservation are broad. Her recent research focus has been on marine invasive species – measuring their ecological and economic impacts, predicting their spread and devising the best ways to control them. Although much of her work is on tropical habitats, focusing on Indo-Pacific lionfish as a model invasive predator, she is also involved in ecological research on the coast of British Columbia, with projects on invasive crabs and mudsnails and how they contribute to cumulative effects of multiple stressors to alter kelp and eelgrass resilience.
