Student research included in published scientific study

Two Santa Catalina School graduates are listed as contributors in a new scientific paper to be published in the February 20 issue of Science of The Total Environment.

Ava Owens ’20 and Candace Wong ’20 are listed alongside researchers from Stanford University, Duke University, and UC Santa Cruz as authors of the study, titled “Who wins or loses matters: Strongly interacting consumers drive seagrass resistance under ocean acidification.”

The young alumnae worked on the study while students in Santa Catalina’s Marine Ecology Research Program, which engages students in real-world science as they develop independent projects in and around Monterey Bay.

Ava is currently a student in the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics at the University of Denver. Candace is a student in the Department of Engineering Science at UC Berkeley.
