Tim's dissertation work at the University of Washington involved developing estimation methods for various characteristics of Alaskan fishery catches from observer data. He then moved to the University of New Hampshire where his postdoctoral work focused on developing methods that could use data from both conventional tag-recovery experiments and satellite tags to estimate movement and mortality rates for bluefin tuna. During his time at the Northeast Fisheries Science Center, Tim has been a lead assessment scientist for Acadian redfish and Atlantic butterfish and led the analytical work to determine conversion coefficients for the Albatross IV and the Henry B. Bigelow. Tim's current work primarily involves development of stock assessment models that attempt to more accurately represent uncertainty in output important for management. This model development also focuses on allowing inclusion of environmental drivers and interactions of species. Tim has also collaborated with other scientists at the NEFSC to estimate survey gear efficiency relative to chain-sweep gear from the twin-trawl experiments carried out from 2015 to 2017.
