Before joining the NWFSC, Jeff's previous work included Midwest-ceded territory treaty fisheries issues, landlocked Laurentian Great Lakes sea lamprey alternative life history rearing strategies, and associated host mortality, predator-prey and fish community dynamics. He earned an M.S. in Limnology and Marine Science from the University of Wisconsin Madison's Center for Limnology, a B.S. in Biology from the University of Washington, and a B.A. in Economics from the University of Minnesota.
Jeff's primary focus is on salmonid recovery-related projects, mostly in building whole life cycle population viability models to explore responses to alternative management actions and climate change effects.
