Liv Williamson

Program Manager Revive & Restore
Marine Biology & Ecology

As Program Manager at Revive & Restore, Liv develops and oversees applied genetic rescue projects for endangered species around the world and helps craft the organization’s scientific focus. She manages the Advanced Coral Toolkit, which supports the development and field testing of cutting-edge biotechnologies for coral conservation. Liv shares her passion for the natural world through science communication, education, and citizen science, empowering people of all backgrounds to be environmental stewards.

Before her current role, Liv was an Assistant Scientist in the Coral Reef Futures Lab, where she tested innovative strategies to increase the survival and fitness of threatened Caribbean corals in the face of climate change. She managed collaborative projects that studied “assisted evolution” approaches such as managed breeding and microbiome manipulation to boost coral genetic diversity, enhance climate resilience, and inform reef restoration. Livgraduated from Barnard College of Columbia University with a B.A. in environmental science in 2017, and earned her Ph.D. in Marine Biology and Ecology at the Rosenstiel School of Marine, Atmospheric, and Earth Science in 2022.
