Amy K. Langston

I am an ecologist interested in landscape-scale responses of ecosystems to the effects of climate change and local stressors. My current work focuses on desert conservation, restoration, and research in California as the Director of Restoration and Research at the Mojave Desert Land Trust. My academic work focused on evaluating responses of salt marshes and coastal forests to sea level rise using numerical models and field data as a postdoc at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science, William & Mary. I completed my PhD in Environmental Engineering at the University of Florida, my MS in Biology at San Francisco State University, and my BS in Ecology at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo.

I also spent many years working in environmental consulting in California where I assessed potential impacts from proposed projects on aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems throughout the state. When I'm not working, I love to botanize in the desert and hike in the mountains with my partner and our two dogs. When indoors, I'm a sucker for a cross-stitch project.
