Sara Hogan

Ph.D. (Reidenbach)

A graduate of the University of Notre Dame with a BS in Environmental Science, Sara is now pursuing a Masters degree focusing on oyster restoration. She is using LiDAR data to map reefs in the intertidal region of the Virginia Coast Reserve to understand reefs’ location, elevation, and correlations with the physical environment. She is also examining how to best design restored oyster reefs by investigating how reefs can both optimize habitat and shoreline protection.
