Damian C. Brady

Damian is an Associate Professor in the School of Marine Sciences at the Darling Marine Center, University of Maine. He earned his doctorate at the University of Delaware in 2008, and his research combines approaches from disciplines including marine biology, biogeochemistry and environmental engineering to address questions about water quality and ecosystem function.

Since beginning work at the University of Maine in 2010, Damian has studied how coasts and estuaries are affected by human uses as varied as aquaculture, offshore wind energy development, and eutrophication. He is the environmental monitoring lead for the University of Maine’s offshore wind energy projects and assistant director of a National Science Foundation project examining how climate change influences farmer decision-making and the consequences for local water quality.
