Suresh A. Sethi
Associate Professor and Director, Aquatic Research and Environmental Assessment
Dr. Sethi is a fisheries ecologist working across ecological, social, and quantitative sciences to advance solutions to aquatic ecosystem sustainability challenges. His work in fisheries science span scales with recent projects including reestablishment of extirpated fish species in the Finger Lakes region of New York, conservation of free-flowing rivers in the Amazon, and seascape scale management of commercial fisheries. Suresh frequently engages in interdisciplinary efforts to address ecosystem management challenges, including collaborations in the conservation finance space that seek to both align business practices with biodiversity stewardship and mobilize financial resources to support global biodiversity conservation. His research aims to support on-the-ground sustainability advancement and thus cooperative science with partners at regulatory agencies, conservation organizations, and marine industry sectors underpins his aquatic science program.
