Lisa Ailloud, Ph.D.
Lisa Ailloud obtained her Ph.D. in Marine Science in 2018 from the Virginia Institute of Marine Science, College of William & Mary, and holds B.S. and B.A. degrees in Marine Science and Environmental Studies from American University in Washington, DC. Her graduate work, funded by a National Marine Fisheries Service/Sea Grant Fellowship in Population and Ecosystem Dynamics, focused on improving fisheries stock assessments and management advice for bluefin tunas and other highly migratory species. In 2018, she joined the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT) to work as Assistant Coordinator for the Atlantic Ocean Tropical Tuna Tagging Program where she helped coordinate tagging and tag recovery activities, lead the age and growth team, instructed science capacity building workshops, and conducted quantitative analyses of fisheries data to inform the stock assessment process for tropical tunas in the Atlantic. Lisa is now excited to take on the new role of stock assessment scientist for the Sustainable Fisheries Division - Gulf and Caribbean Branch of the Southeast Fisheries Science Center.
