My name is Cesar Estien (Say-zar Es-tee-en) and I'm an 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 influence eco-evolutionary dynamics with hopes of translating this information to create effective policies that conserve wild spaces, create equitable/just 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. I sometimes write on my personal blog which can be found here.
