Kelly Keen, MAS 2012
Kelly Keen earned her master's degree in marine biodiversity and conservation from Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego in 2012. Her thesis explored deep-water sound propagation from seismic air-gun surveys in the Arctic, possible consequences for bowhead whales and native subsistence communities, and the effectiveness of mitigation measures put in place to reduce these possible impacts.
As a State Fellow at the California State Lands Commission, she will be "working on a variety of complex and challenging marine and coastal issues concerning offshore geophysical and seismic surveys, marine renewable energy technologies, and marine debris."
