"In addition to leading the Marine Mammal Genetics Program, I actively participate in the IUCN Cetacean Specialist Group and chair the Marine Mammal Society's Conservation Committee. My first ten years in marine mammal research were spent studying harbor porpoise, harbor seals, bowhead whales and humpback whales, mostly in Alaska. Since receiving my PhD at the University of California, San Diego, my research has shifted from a field orientation to a quantitative approach. My research interests include genetics focusing on identifying units to conserve; population dynamics of small populations; conservation biology; demography; population viability analysis and decision analysis."
