Selected Publications



I am a Senior Lecturer and the Academic Coordinator at the Oregon Institute of Marine Biology. My responsibilities include planning the annual summer session program and the fall and spring course offerings. During summer session I teach Bi 458 Marine Birds and Mammals, and during fall quarter, I teach BI 457 Marine Biology: Marine Environmental Issues.

My research interests are diverse, ranging from the ecology of marine birds and mammals to the biological consequences of introduced species. I do not accept graduate students but I often have undergraduates working with me on research projects.

I am the Director of the Center for Ocean Science Education Excellence (COSEE) – Pacific Partnerships, a Principal Investigator of the NSF funded OIMB Graduate Fellows in K -12 Project, and the Supporting and Advancing Geoscience Education in Two-Year College Project.
