Stuart Siegel


Dr. Stuart Siegel focuses on the intersections of climate change, natural resources resiliency, ecosystem restoration, management-relevant science, and regional planning. He has been at the forefront of ecosystem restoration before it gained its modern name, and has worked on climate change-driven projects for several years. An environmental scientist with an emphasis in wetlands geomorphology, Dr. Siegel has broad expertise in hydrology, ecology, public policy, environmental regulation, management, and business. Dr. Siegel is actively engaged in ecosystem restoration projects, participating in regional natural resources planning activities, and applied or “management relevant” scientific research. Dr. Siegel has lead design teams for several wetland restoration projects in the San Francisco Estuary responsive to climate change, including Aramburu Island, Sonoma Creek, and Sears Point. He was a co-lead scientist for DRERIP, technical lead for the Delta Vision Ecosystem Workgroup, Suisun Marsh Plan Science Advisor, and lead PI for the Integrated Regional Wetland Monitoring Pilot Project. He co-authored the Wetland Carbon Sequestration Road Map to Implementation, authored the climate change chapter of the 2014 Moyle Suisun Marsh book, has served on technical advisory panels for large restoration projects, and directed a number of large grants totaling over $9 million. Dr. Siegel has worked largely in the San Francisco Estuary, with additional work in French Polynesia.
