Basic Life Scientist
BioI am a Staff Scientist at the Stanford Center for Ocean Solutions. My research focuses on optimizing molecular and computational tools to address ecological and evolutionary questions. I have published in the areas of environmental change, ocean health, biodiversity, disease, eDNA, -omics, and aquaculture. I hold a B.S. in Biology from the University of Georgia, began my doctoral studies at the University of California, Merced, and earned my Ph.D. at Penn State. I completed two postdoctoral appointments, first as a joint-postdoctoral researcher at University of Washington's School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences and University of Maryland's Institute for Marine and Environmental Technology. Second, I completed advanced collaborative training as a postdoctoral scholar at Stanford University’s Woods Institute for the Environment in conjunction with the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. I enjoy exploring and teaching about the natural world, its diversity, complexities, and the challenges faced by our environment.

Sadie Rosalie Gruenwald Cwikiel
Research Assistant, Center for Ocean Solutions
BioSadie is a senior majoring in Earth Systems in the Oceans and Climate track and minoring in creative writing. She grew up in Northern Michigan and has always loved spending time outside. She is interested in oceanography, tropical ecosystems, and conservation. Her favorite Stanford quarter was spent studying ecology and anthropology during the Wrigley Field Program in Hawaii. Her group research project on parrotfish in Hawaiian coral reefs inspired her love for marine ecosystems. Sadie also studied abroad in Santiago, Chile, and enjoyed hiking in the Andes and practicing Spanish. She has spent her summers researching the impacts of drought and flooding events on soil respiration, working with a citizen science program in the Peruvian rainforest, and sailing through the Phoenix Islands Protected Area during a SEA Semester. Outside of academics, Sadie enjoys leading SPOT and adventure trips with Stanford Outdoor Education, leading tours at Jasper Ridge, playing drums in LSJUMB, creative writing, and dancing. In her free time, she likes to go hiking and camping, do ceramics, or go to the beach.
