I am a Professor of Marine Science at the School of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. Since 1989 I have been fortunate to study the physical processes that affect the oceanography of the continental shelves of the Gulf of Alaska, and Bering, Chukchi, and Beaufort seas. See a sampling of this work.

I am particularly interested in the mechanisms that govern circulation, affect mixing, and alter the temperature and salinity of continental shelf waters. My measurements of currents, temperature, salinity, and fluorescence (a proxy for chlorophyll) come from moored oceanographic instruments that sample year-round at hourly intervals and instruments deployed from ships as diverse as nuclear submarines and small skiffs. In addition I use satellite-tracked drifters and a variety of satellite-derived data sets in my research.
