Dr. Iain Caldwell is a Research Associate focused on Quantitative Social-Ecological Systems. He grew up in Canada where he completed his BSc (Mount Allison University), MSc (Dalhousie University), and a PhD focused on “Habitat use, movement, and vulnerability of sedentary fishes in a dynamic world” (The University of British Columbia). He then spent several years as a postdoctoral researcher in the United States, associated with the Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology (University of Hawaii), University of California Santa Barbara, and Stanford University.

Iain's current research addresses why fish and other marine organisms end up where they do and what that can mean for their future, and the future of people that depend on those organisms, given predicted changes in global climate and increasing human impacts to many of the world’s coastal ecosystems. Trained as a quantitative ecologist and interested in intersections between ecology and social sciences (particularly behavioural economics), Iain uses a variety of analytical approaches to (1) understand what drives distribution and movement of organisms across time and space, (2) predict how changes in those drivers could impact biodiversity and food security, and (3) improve management and conservation strategies to minimize negative effects on ecosystems and the people that depend on them.
