Dr. Julia Stewart Lowndes is a marine data scientist at the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis (NCEAS) at UC Santa Barbara. As the Ocean Health Index (OHI), she works to bridge marine science and resource management, and leads a training program internationally to enable independent groups to assess ocean health and inform policy in their own waters. Increasingly, she is teaching open data science trainings as an instructor through OHI, NCEAS, Software Carpentry, RLadies, and Mozilla Study Groups (eco-data-science). Prior to joining the OHI team, Julia earned her Ph.D. at Stanford University, researching potential effects of the Humboldt squid on coastal fisheries in a changing climate.
