GOALS & ACHIEVEMENTS
Assistant Professor, Ecology & Evolutionary Biology School of Biological Sciences
Dr. Cascade Sorte is a marine ecologist who studies the impacts of global change across scales, from physiology up to species ranges. She is best known for her work showing that climate change can favor invasive species, leading to increased impacts on native species. Her recent research interests include exploring "coping mechanisms" that could allow species to persist in a changing climate and using field experiments to predict impacts of climate change on intact communities.
Dr. Sorte is originally from the Pacific Northwest and earned her B.A. degree at Whitman College (1999), Master's degree at UC-Santa Barbara (2003), and Ph.D. at UC-Davis (2010) before conducting postdoctoral work in the Northeast (2010-2013 at UMass-Boston). In addition to her love of research, she is strongly committed to mentoring, teaching, and sharing her passion for nature and the sciences.Back To Mentors
