Matthew Ware (2019- current)
Dr. Matthew Ware is a coastal ecologist working to balance the human use and continued function of coastal ecosystems. His PhD with FSU MTRECG investigated how our beach- and species management actions impact the nesting environment of sea turtles in Alabama. As a member of the lab, Matt has led projects mapping sea turtle habitat use and population dynamics in Crystal River, boat distribution and boater attitudes toward mitigating sea turtle vessel strikes in the St Lucie Inlet, and wave exposure of nesting beaches in the Florida Panhandle and Alabama. When not conducting research, Matt is an avid photographer and SCUBA diver.
