Carin Ashjian received her PhD in Oceanography from the University of Rhode Island in 1991. She held postdoctoral positions at Brookhaven National Laboratory, the University of Miami, and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) before joining the scientific staff in the Biology Department at WHOI in 1996.

Her research focuses on biological-physical associations relative to the distribution of zooplankton and zooplankton rate processes. She uses optical (Video Plankton Recorder), acoustic, and traditional (nets, lab experiments) methods in her work. She has participated in a number of cruises to the Antarctic and Arctic, including to the Chukchi and Beaufort Seas, the Norwegian Sea, the NE Water Polynya off of Greenland, the Canada Basin (SHEBA Ice Camp), the Antarctic Peninsula, and the Beaufort Shelf near Barrow, AK.

Her most recent project before the Bering Sea Project focuses on the potential impact of climate change on the formation of bowhead whale prey patches near Barrow, AK and the subsequent influence of changes in whale prey, and hence whale, locations on Iñupiat subsistence whaling.
