Kelly A. Kearney


I’m a marine scientist who studies marine (and occasionally coastal) ecosystem dynamics.   I am currently a research scientist at University of Washington, working with Kerim Aydin’s research group at the NOAA Alaska Fisheries Science Center.  I earned my Ph.D. from Princeton University’s Geosciences department, working with Jorge Sarmiento.

My primary research interests are in developing modeling techniques that bridge the gap between traditional lower trophic level biogeochemical models and upper trophic level fisheries and ecosystem models.  In addition, I enjoy dabbling in data visualization, particularly in developing novel methods for visualizing complex food webs.
