Executive Director
Lyndie Hice-Dunton is the Executive Director of the National Offshore Wind Research and Development Consortium. Prior to joining the Consortium in 2023, Lyndie served as the Executive Director of the Responsible Offshore Science Alliance (ROSA), which works to enhance scientific understanding necessary to support the coexistence of wind energy development and sustainable fisheries. Dr. Hice-Dunton is a marine scientist with a multidisciplinary background in marine ecology, environmental policy, and offshore development. Lyndie’s offshore wind efforts have allowed her to work closely with state and federal regulatory agencies, researchers, offshore wind developers and fishing industry representatives to identify the best science-based approaches that improve our understanding of the effects of wind energy development on ocean ecosystems and support research and technology innovation. She holds a doctorate in Marine and Atmospheric Sciences from Stony Brook University.
