Sarah M. Reiter '13
Professor Reiter has experience in addressing complex environmental challenges. She returned to VLS in 2016 after working in the ocean conservation field for several years.
While at NOAA’s Office of General Counsel, Stanford’s Center for Ocean Solutions, and the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Professor Reiter’s work spanned research on the ocean’s seafloor to its uppermost polar region, and played a role in the negotiation of several environmental agreements. She continues to collaborate with colleagues on ocean conservation initiatives through cross-disciplinary scholarship, which can be found in journals such as Science and Stanford Environmental Law Journal. Prior to working in ocean conservation, Professor Reiter served as a commissioned Air Force officer specializing in meteorology, where she managed an operational floor of scientists responsible for providing weather support to military bases west of the Mississippi.
