Putting science to work: bridging academia and industry
by Dr. Sharon Ewe Principal Ecologist at Stantec Consulting Inc.
Dr. Sharon Ewe is a principal ecologist at a multi-national consulting firm, Stantec Consulting Inc., and an affiliate faculty member with University of South Florida. For the last 20 years, she has conducted research across Florida in the Everglades, Biscayne Bay and in the Indian River Lagoon. Her work spans a broad range of ecological areas, from examining nutrient limitations, studying the ecology of tree islands and invasive species, monitoring harmful algal blooms, monitoring marsh-mangrove ecosystem productivity, evaluating saltwater intrusion in coastal groundwaters, to managing a 7,000 acre mitigation bank in southwest Florida. Much of her research is being done in support of regulatory and legal compliance needs. Dr. Ewe strongly supports mentorship and has mentored a number of students in their graduate work and undergraduate research; she is a strong proponent of training competent students who will graduate to become passionate environmental advocates and technically competent applied research scientists.
