Research Assistant Professor

Institute of Marine Science,
School of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences

Research Experience:
I have been involved with taxonomic identification of Alaska marine invertebrates and monitoring marine environments for anthropogenic disturbances.  I focus on sediment-dwelling organisms (the infauna) and how resource use alters communities.  I manage a long-term environmental monitoring project in Port Valdez, Alaska (1971 to present) and am a member of the team working on a environmental assessment of the Chukchi Sea for ConocoPhillips, Shell Exploration and Production, and Statoil.

Interests:
Marine Ecology, Alaskan Invertebrate Taxonomy, Disturbance Ecology, Environmental Statistics, Computer Technology in the Sciences.

Teaching:
I have been teaching Elementary Statistics for a number of years and have developed a Data Analysis for Biology class covering modern statistical methods.
