Biography

Chris Sanchez is a graduate student in the School of Sustainability at Arizona State University working in the Wetlands Ecosystem Ecology lab (WEEL) and, more broadly, the Central Arizona–Phoenix Long-Term Ecological Research (CAP LTER) program. Chris also works as the Lab Manager for the WEEL group. Before becoming a doctoral student at ASU, he worked for several years as an interpretive program leader and administrative coordinator for Miami Dade County Parks, Recreation and Opens Spaces department. He also studied wetland ecology for many years in the Florida Everglades at the Florida Coastal Everglades (FCE) LTER site, where his work was focused on reconstructing historic hydrology patterns and understanding carbon dynamics in coastal mangrove forests. Chris holds a double BA degree in Ecosystem Science & Policy and Anthropology from University of Miami.
