Jacob Katz, Ph.D.

Senior Scientist



Jacob was born with gills.  Fascinated with what happened below the water line he grew up chasing fish in every creek, puddle, river and pond he could find. Jacob earned his Ph.D. in ecology at the UC Davis Center for Watershed Sciences with Dr. Peter Moyle. He directs CalTrout’s Central California region where his work focuses on redesigning California’s antiquated water infrastructure.
