My research during earlier stages of my career concerned mesoscale atmospheric phenomena in the coastal zone. I have always been interested in climate issues, and what began as essentially a professional hobby I have been able to parlay into my current major focus.
Here I recognize FOCI, which provided me the opportunity to begin working on a variety of projects pertaining to the marine ecosystems of Alaska. This research has greatly benefited from the collaborations with scientists at PMEL and AFSC.
I have had a long involvement with the GLOBEC project, both in terms as a source of funding, and as a member of its scientific steering committee. I look forward to working with other Bering Sea Project scientists on how climate change is liable to impact the ecosystem of the Bering Sea.
