Chief Science Officer at PRBO Conservation Science, responsible for shaping and growing PRBO’s multi-investigator scientific research and conservation programs, overseeing ~70 staff scientists and over 100 seasonal and intern biologists. Research interests include the effects of landscape-scale environmental stressors on ecosystems in western North America and the Southern Ocean. I have spent austral summer field seasons on Ross Island, Antarctica, since 1996 and I'm currently co-directing 3 studies of the effects of climate change and other factors on the Ross Sea ecosystem.
