At EcoQuants, we see the world as a complex place. Management of our natural resources and sustainable human uses require a data driven approach.
EcoQuants is a Limited Liability Company (LLC) as of February 2017. We’re excited for the many possibilities ahead in applying sophisticated technology to data driven decision making!
Ben Best, PhD
Environmental Data Scientist & Founder
I am an environmental data scientist with a background in marine spatial ecology. Prior to founding EcoQuants, I lectured at UC Santa Barbara’s Bren School of Environmental Science & Management (see Training) and was the senior analyst for the Ocean Health Index, a research project housed at the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis. In 2016, I completed a PhD at Duke University’s Marine Geospatial Ecology Lab. There I worked on Marine Geospatial Ecology Tools, OBIS-SEAMAP marine animal observation geoportal, Census of Marine Life Map & Viz and predictive distribution modeling of cetaceans.
