JENNIFER MICHELE KARBERG, PHD
Research Program Supervisor
Nantucket Conservation Foundation
Nantucket Conservation Foundation (August 2008 – present)
Research Program Supervisor; Science and Stewardship Department
Executes the Foundation’s scientific research program. Designs, manages and analyzes various research projects aimed at improving knowledge related to ecology and management of rare species and habitats on Nantucket MA.
Oversees a staff of two Ecologists and a seasonal field crew. Research and restoration projects performed in salt marshes, rare coastal plain pond shores, beach and dunes and globally rare sandplain grassland and heathland habitats.
Internal reports, blogpost, social media coordination and professional publications document and communicate Departmental research.
