Senior Freshwater Conservation Biologist
Robin specializes in broad-scale conservation planning to protect freshwater biodiversity. Her current research interests include the application of the High Conservation Value concept and framework to freshwater systems, and the use of protected areas to conserve freshwaters.
In fifteen years Robin has grown WWF’s freshwater science program from a single person to one that spans both biology and hydrology and is regarded as working at the leading edge of freshwater conservation. In addition to her freshwater responsibilities, Robin currently oversees and provides strategic direction for WWF’s Conservation Science Network and Kathryn Fuller Science for Nature Programs. Robin has a BA from Yale University in American studies and environmental studies, and an MS in freshwater ecology from the University of Michigan.
