Elizabeth Babcock, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor
University of Miami

Dr. Elizabeth Babcock is an assistant professor at the University of Miami's Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, and is a quantitative fisheries scientist, with experience in fisheries stock assessment and marine fish conservation for species including sharks, billfishes, and sturgeons.

Dr. Babcock is especially adept at using advanced mathematical approaches to inform management of fisheries for which traditional fisheries data are lacking. Dr. Babcock is increasingly interested in spatial management measures (e.g., marine reserves) and ecosystem impacts of fisheries, an interest that stems in part from her 10 years working at Glover’s Reef in Belize.
