Environmental Scientist & Geomorphologist, San Francisco Estuary Institute
Julie Beagle joined SFEI in 2010 as a geomorphologist in the Resilient Landscape program. Her work focuses on fluvial and tidal geomorphic processes in Bay Area rivers and wetlands, and she is particularly interested in the physical and biological responses to sea level rise and climate change. Her work also examines how landscapes have changed since European contact, and uses this information to guide landscape-scale restoration strategies in Bay Area watersheds and the Delta. She received a master’s degree from UC Berkeley in Environmental Planning in 2010 focusing on geomorphology and watershed management. Previously, Julie worked at the California Land Stewardship Institute and served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in agroforestry in West Africa. She has a bachelor of arts in history and environmental science from Barnard College, Columbia University.
