I grew up on the Isle of Wight, a small island off of the south coast of Britain. Being constantly surrounded by water fueled my desire to study the ocean. I am particularly interested in how changes in the physical ocean influence biological production. I received my joint honors BSc in Marine Biology and Oceanography from the University of Wales, Bangor and my PhD in Biological Oceanography from the University of Alaska Fairbanks.

I am presently a marine ecosystem modeler with the Arctic Region Supercomputing Center in Fairbanks, Alaska. My use computational approaches to explore marine ecosystem dynamics and improve our ability to rapidly detect changes in marine ecosystems, as well as to and predict future change in marine productivity, with the goal of developing tools to aid in sustainable fisheries management. I specialize in lower trophic level,NPZ food web models and am currently developing a coupled NPZ-ROMS model with a benthic sub-model for the southeast Bering Sea.
