Jay M. Ver Hoef

I am a senior scientist and statistician for the Marine Mammal Lab, part of the Alaska Fisheries Science Center of NOAA Fisheries, U.S. Dept. of Commerce. I work for a U.S. Government research lab where I develop statistical methods and consult on a wide variety of topics related to marine mammals and stream networks. The Marine Mammal Lab is located in Seattle, Washington, although I live in Fairbanks, Alaska. My main statistical interests are in spatial statistics and Bayesian statistics, especially applied to ecological and environmental data.
