Katrina Lewandowski

Coastal Resilience Specialist & Knauss Marine Policy Fellow
Katrina is a 2024 John A. Knauss Marine Policy Fellow working as a Coastal Resilience Specialist in the National Sea Grant Office.

She is also a Ph.D. candidate at Wayne State University and is currently working on her dissertation in Great Lakes ecology studying the interactions between non-native quagga mussels and yellow perch. Upon completion of her degree, Katrina will hold a dual title in Biology and Urban Sustainability.

While in graduate school, she collaborated with a local non-profit to install green stormwater infrastructure and has a passion for community outreach and engagement and climate adaptation. She also served as a student member on the Board of Trustees for the Michigan chapter of the Nature Conservancy. During her two years volunteering with the Nature Conservancy, Katrina advised on project direction at board meetings, met with lawmakers to communicate relevant conservation bills and contributed to multi-agency projects identifying key conservation features within Michigan.

In her time outside work Katrina enjoys beach combing, ballet, and learning new hobbies.
