Serena Desai graduated from California Polytechnic University in San Luis Obispo. She received her B.S. in Biological Science and has an STS minor in Science & Risk Communication. This past summer, she helped collect data for CCFRP, an organization that assesses Marine Protected Areas along the Central Coast. Her data analysis project looked at how temperature and larger oceanic processes affect the catch rates of blue rockfish. It is through her love for the ocean and passion to help the environment that she came to CivicSpark. She hopes to help implement changes that help reduce carbon footprint on a local level because she believes every action has a ripple effect.
