Meet Oregon Sea Grant Experts

Sam Chan

Extension Watersheds and Aquatic Invasive Species - Sam conducts applied research and provides public education and engagement to Oregonians to help them understand, identify, control, and manage the spread of marine invasives.

"Trade, transportation, development and recreation increasingly connect our water resources...providing unintended conduits for damaging aquatic invasive species. A humbling lesson I have learned is that people can unknowingly create unintended problems,but can also to be the solution to solving problems."

Amanda Gladics

Fisheries Specialist - Based in Astoria, Oregon, Amanda assists the commercial fishing industry along the northern Oregon coast and the lower Columbia River.

"I've enjoyed doing collaborative research with the fishermen. I look forward to expanding on what I've learned from them as I focus on connecting coastal communities with the university. I hope to help coastal stakeholders understand one another better and help them work toward creating thriving communities and ecosystems on the Oregon coast."

Cait Goodwin

STEM Communication and Quests - Cait Goodwin is a member of the Oregon Sea Grant marine education team at the Hatfield Marine Science Center's Visitor Center in Newport. She is the creator and coordinator of the popular Oregon Coast Quests activities, and also handles communication efforts for the Oregon Coast STEM Hub.

"Marine education programs help students see the possibilities for their futures...By engaging in hands-on activities and interacting with STEM professionals, they are exposed to careers they didn't know existed before."
