I am currently a research scientist at the University of Washington, JISAO, affiliated with the NOAA Alaska Fisheries Science Center. My research interests center on the processes controlling energy flow through pelagic ocean ecosystems, from nutrient cycling and primary production through predator/prey interactions and fisheries harvesting. To this end, my work has focused on developing mechanistic modeling techniques that bridge the gap between traditional lower trophic level biogeochemical models and upper trophic level fisheries and ecosystem models.
