Steven Eikenbary
Assistant Scientist

Mr. Steven Eikenbary is an environmental scientist with 4 years of analytical, field, and laboratory experience.  He received his M.S. in environmental science from Western Washington University in 2020 and a B.S. in marine science from California State University, Monterey Bay, in 2017.  Mr. Eikenbary has conducted probabilistic and quantitative analyses to determine the key contributors to risk for state and federally listed species, as well as analysis and management of large data sets.  His work includes the development of Bayesian network models for probabilistic risk assessment, statistical analyses using R, and the use of ArcGIS for spatial analyses.

Mr. Eikenbary also has experience in both ecotoxicology and risk assessment looking at pelagic species decline in the Upper San Francisco Estuary, and the use of Bayesian network tools for the risk assessment of synthetic biology as vectors to control disease.  In addition, he has conducted fieldwork for USGS, including streamflow and flood stage high water measurement, and is familiar with survey and level techniques.  He acquired laboratory experience while researching the effects of ocean acidification and hypoxia on rockfish, including experimental setup and maintenance of day-to-day treatments.  Mr. Eikenbary has experience in resource protection and helped develop an action plan for vessel groundings and abandonments within West Coast National Marine Sanctuary waters.
