Chad is a jack of all trades who thinks he runs the lab. He builds things, programs things, analyzes data,and participates in field efforts.
Faculty Research Assistant
Neal completed her Master's degree in our group studying the ecology of juvenile pollock in the Bering Sea. she is now providing technical support for the group.
Dave recently joined our group and will be studying hake and squid in the California current.
The research in my lab at Oregon State focuses on water-column ecology in both open and coastal marine environment. Students with an interest understanding ecological processes in the ocean at any trophic level are encouraged. Most of the work in my lab involves acoustical oceanographic techniques so students will need a solid background in physics. Computer programming skills are a plus.
Amanda studied the ecological role of schooling fish and the dynamics of mysids off the Oregon coast. She is currently a post-doctoral researcher at the Duke University Marine Laboratory.
Masters in Marine Resources Management, December 2008
Dan joined the lab in September of 2006. He used his engineering background to work on the development of a new sonar and to calibrate custom-built light meters. He used these new tools to address the role of light in fish behavior.
