Dr. Archer received her BS in Ecology from University of Georgia and her MS in Ecology from Utah State University. In the fall of 2015 she completed her PhD in Zoology at North Carolina State University where she studied how sponges influence the structure and function of seagrass beds and coral reefs. In early 2016 Stephanie began her appointment as an NSERC Visiting Fellow with DFO in Nanaimo. At the Pacific Biological Station she has been working on describing the community associated with glass sponge reefs and developing new methods for monitoring these amazing ecosystems.
