My name is Cesar Estien (Say-zar Es-tee-en) and I'm a NSF Graduate Research & Chancellor Fellow at the University of California, Berkeley in the Schell Lab. Additionally, I serve as the Co-Chair of the Environmental Justice Section of the Ecological Society of America. As an ecologist, I'm interested in understanding how humans and cities influence wildlife behavior, health, and community structure with hopes of translating this information to create effective policies that create greener, more equitable cities, and combat environmental racism.
I occasionally write about urban ecology over at Life in the City: Evolving in an Urbanizing World - check it out! The articles I have published there can be found here.
