I am currently on the faculty as a fishery biometrician at the Juneau Center, School of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences, University of Alaska Fairbanks.

Born and raised in northern Germany, I began biological studies at the Rhino-Westphalian Technical Institute in Aachen before moving to Fairbanks in 1988 to pursue graduate degrees in biological (MS) and fisheries oceanography (PhD), as well as biostatistics (MS). My research initially focused on the early life history of pollock and flatfishes in nearshore waters of the Gulf of Alaska, and gradually expanded to include adult groundfish communities throughout the Gulf of Alaska and Bering Sea. I have also modeled recruitment processes of salmon throughout the Northeast Pacific and have worked on other anadromous species in Alaskan waters, including the Beaufort Sea.

My research interests focus on the effects of environmental variability on the distribution, abundance, recruitment, and survival of fishes in subarctic and arctic waters. I am particularly interested in the applied aspects of my research, particularly as they relate to the management of fisheries resources. This includes the development of ecosystem indicators and improved models to advance an ecosystem-based approach to fisheries management.

I came to the Bering Sea Project through my interest in the effects of climate change on Bering Sea groundfish and on the Bering Sea ecosystem in general. I look forward to participating in and contributing to a truly integrated project.

    WHo we are
    GENERAL INFO

    Established in 2001, NPRB is a marine research organization that supports pressing fishery management issues or marine ecosystem needs.

    REPORTS & PUBLICATIONS

    More than 600 peer-reviewed publications have been produced through NPRB-funded research. Browse our library and our reports here.

    LEADERSHIP

    NPRB comprises a 20 member Board, representing Federal, State, and other entitites while receiving advice from Science and Advisory Panels.

    PARTNERSHIPS

    Looking to partner with NPRB? NPRB welcomes partnerships to co-fund research in areas of common interest and across its programs.

    OUTREACH & ENGAGEMENT

    NPRB communicates and engages with a broad and diverse set of Alaskan stakeholders and audiences, from coastal communities to academia.

    STAFF

    NPRB staff support the Board, Science, and Advisory Panels for funding decisions, science priorities, recommendations, and program management.

    Funding Available

    The Core Program offers year-round funding with flexible rolling submission options.

    SUBMIT YOUR RESEARCH PRIORITIES

    NPRB staff begins developing draft research priorities for the Core Program in late July and August. Submit before July 2nd to be considered for the current year’s RFP development. 

    Our Programs
    INTEGRATED ECOSYSTEM PROGRAMS
    SCIENCE FOUNDATION

    NPRB maintains scientific programs designed to address pressing fishery management issues and Alaska marine ecosystem information needs.

    CORE PROGRAM

    NPRB supports a competitive, peer-reviewed annual request for proposal (RFP) process dedicated to marine research in Alaskan waters.

    The Arctic Integrated Ecosystem Reserach Program looked at how physical changes in the ocean influence the flow of energy through the marine food web in the Bering Strait, Chukchi Sea, and western Beaufort Sea from 2017-2021.

    OUTREACH PROGRAM

    Supporting science communication, engagement, outreach, and education initiatives for all our research programs.

    LONG-TERM MONITORING

    This program supports new or existing time-series research that enhance the ability to understand the current state of marine ecosystems.

    The Bering Sea Project, a partnership between the North Pacific Research Board and the National Science Foundation, sought to understand the impacts of climate change and dynamic sea ice cover on the eastern Bering Sea ecosystem.

    INTEGRATED ECOSYSTEM RESEARCH

    These are large-scale interdisciplinary ecosystem-based programs, requiring multiple agency coordination, collaboration, and investigation.

    GRADUATE STUDENT RESEARCH AWARDS

    NPRB supports next generation scientists, researchers, and resource managers to further their studies in relevant fields of marine science and to our mission.

    The Gulf of Alaska Project tested three main hypotheses about the survival and recruitment of five focal groundfish species (Pacific cod, Pacific ocean perch, walleye pollock, arrowtooth flounder, sablefish) during their first year of life.
