Prior to joining the Alaska Fisheries Science Center, Sandra (Sandy) Parker-Stetter served as the Team Lead for the Fisheries Engineering and Acoustic Technologies team in the Fishery Resource Analysis and Monitoring Division at the Northwest Fisheries Science Center.
Parker-Stetter received her HBSc from the University of Windsor (Ontario) and her MSc and PhD from Cornell University (New York). Her HBSc and MSc focused on freshwater ecology and invasive species in Lakes Erie and Champlain. Her Ph,D, used acoustic-trawl methods to evaluate the distribution and ecology of rainbow smelt in Lake Champlain.
Parker-Stetter also completed a postdoctoral program with the University of Washington’s (UW) School of Aquatic and Fishery Science. As a PostDoc and Research Scientist at UW, she used acoustic-trawl methods to study fish and invertebrate species in the Bering Sea, Arctic, and Salish Sea.
