NOAA Alaska Fisheries Science Center
I am a Research Fisheries Biologist at the NOAA Alaska Fisheries Science Center in Seattle, WA, where I work in the acoustics group. I received a BS in Biology from UCLA in 1995, and a PhD in Oceanography from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in 2001 where I studied predator-prey interactions between fish and euphausiids. I went on to do postdoctoral work at the Hatfield Marine Science center, where I worked on the ecology of early ocean entry salmon in the Columbia river plume.
My research interests include development of acoustic methods to quantify the abundance of marine organisms, and investigating the role of physiological constraints and predation risk on the behavior and distribution of marine organisms.
