Science and beauty in river meander design Biography Nancy is the Director of the Water Program and a senior fellow at the Pisces Foundation. Nancy is based in Washington, D.C. and regularly spends time at the Foundation's office in San Francisco. Kristen works as an Ecologist for The Nature Conservancy in the Sierra Nevada and Cascades, California. Her research focus is on watershed planning and monitoring the impacts of restoration projects. She uses spatially-explicit models, stakeholder-input, and cost-effectiveness in conservation planning to quantify ecosystem services and trade-offs associated with different land management and restoration scenarios. She’s also working with partners on a meadow restoration and research study to evaluate the impact of beaver biomimicry structures and livestock grazing management on carbon storage, water storage and timing, and habitat for two threatened species. She received her Ph.D. in Environmental Planning with a focus on river restoration from the University of California, Berkeley
