I am an industry economist in the Economics and Social Sciences Research Program, Alaska Fisheries Science Center. My general research interests are in the economic relationships between people and ecosystems in the context of climatic variability and long term climate change. My current research focuses on the development and use of statistical bioeconomic models to improve understanding of fishery dynamics, notably spatial dynamics, when there is uncertainty in climate, fish stocks, market conditions, regulations, and other factors.

My other area of research involves an integrated assessment model of global climate change that couples economic, demographic, and biogeochemical components. Goals of this multidisciplinary work are to improve the treatment of demography, food production, and trade in future emissions scenarios with a better understanding of consequences for climate change and ocean acidification that apply to marine ecosystems in the North Pacific. I received my PhD in economics from the University of Minnesota in 1995, worked at Stanford University as a postdoctoral research associate from 1995-1998, and was an associate professor at California State University Monterey Bay until joining NOAA Fisheries in 2006.
