Dr. Janet Duffy-Anderson is the Program Manager for the NOAA/Alaska Fisheries Science Center’s Recruitment Processes Program and co-lead for the Ecosystems and Fisheries Oceanography Coordinated Investigations (EcoFOCI) Program. Janet earned a BS from Lafayette College, a PhD from the University of Delaware, and she conducted postdoctoral work at Rutgers University and the University of Washington. She currently works at the US National Marine Fisheries Service linking fish early life history ecology to recruitment dynamics and ecosystem functioning in Alaska. She has a deep interest in flatfish and gadid ecology, and has worked to understand the mechanisms by which shifts in climate and oceanography influence fish distribution, trophic dynamics, population variability, and fishery outcomes. Janet uses mechanistic understanding to develop indicators that can be used in stock assessments, forecasting, and Ecosystem Based Fishery Management decision making.
