Jenn Caselle is a Research Biologist at the Marine Science Institute, University of California Santa Barbara. Her research is broadly focused on marine conservation and reef ecology. She works in both coral reef and kelp forest ecosystems studying community dynamics, recruitment and larval dispersal and movement patterns of fishes. Caselle has designed and managed a large-scale field-based monitoring program of kelp forests in the California current ecosystem with goals of assessing long-term changes due to climate and anthropogenic impacts. This program has become the basis of Marine Protected Area monitoring throughout California and the west Coast of the United States. She is also the Science Coordinator for PISCO (Partnership for Interdisciplinary Studies of Coastal Oceans; www.piscoweb.org).
