Kelly A. Kearney


I am a marine scientist whose research focuses on marine (and occasionally coastal) ecosystem dynamics.  Specifically, I am interested in developing modeling techniques that bridge the gap between traditional lower trophic level biogeochemical models and upper trophic level fisheries and ecosystem models.  I am currently a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Miami RSMAS Cooperative Institute of Marine and Atmospheric Science, based at NOAA’s Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory.  I earned my Ph.D. from Princeton University’s Geosciences department, working with Jorge Sarmiento.
