Anna Calle

Research Assistant

Anna has always been fascinated by the biodiversity of the Galapagos Islands and the Amazon rainforest. Her desire to protect these unique ecosystems motivated her to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara, with the support of a SENESCYT scholarship awarded by the government of Ecuador. She also holds a master’s degree with a specialization in Conservation Planning and a focus on Environmental Data Science from the Bren School of Environmental Science & Management. For her master’s thesis, she worked with a multidisciplinary team and the World Wildlife Fund to develop a mapping web-based tool to assist with aquaculture planning strategies. As a Research Assistant for the Galapagos Verde 2050 project, Anna hopes to apply her conservation and data analysis skills to restore endangered plant species and the terrestrial ecosystems of the Galapagos.
