Jeff Goddard

I am a Research Associate affiliated with both UC Santa Barbara's Marine Science Institute and the California Academy of Sciences. I specialize in the natural history, systematics, and distribution of heterobranch sea slugs and their prey in the NE Pacific Ocean and also have interests in botany and natural history in general. I received my Ph.D. in Ecology and Evolution from the University of Oregon in 1992. Most of my marine-related observations come from the intertidal zone, with a few from snorkeling in shallow water, and for the past few years I have been assisted on many trips by my eagle-eyed twins, Ziggy and Will.
