Nann Fangue Selected Chancellor's Fellow
She studies native fish species, their habitat requirements and how they respond to changing environments. She has brought to conservation biology a set of physiological techniques to analyze and predict the effects of changing environmental conditions on key fish species in the San Francisco Bay and the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, as well as in polar and tropical systems. Most of the species she studies — green and white sturgeon, delta smelt, salmonids — are listed as endangered or threatened. Her work provides important contributions to understanding those species, their needs and the challenges facing them. Fangue’s excellence in advising was recognized with the College of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences’ 2016 Eleanor and Harry Walker Award, and the 2017 faculty advisor award from the Region 9 National Academic Advising Association. She earned her doctoral degree at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada, and was a National Science Foundation postdoctoral fellow at UC Santa Barbara before joining UC Davis in 2009.
