Amanda Faig

Past Postdoctoral Fellow
Amanda was a postdoctoral research associate based out of NOAA’s Alaska Fisheries Science Center. She works with a large team of economists, biologists, and oceanographers on the Alaska Climate Integrated Modeling (ACLIM) project. She earned her PhD in Agricultural and Resource Economics from UC Davis in 2016 with Dr. James Wilen, looking at fisheries management when genetic issues (such as fisheries induced evolution or the degradation of the portfolio effect) are influenced by management choices. With the ACLIM project she is building models of how the Bering Sea and Aleutian Island fisheries are managed and prosecuted, as well as models of socioeconomic scenarios asking how the fishery could be managed and prosecuted. Her economic models integrate with the biological and physical models created by her collaborators in order to simulate how alternative management strategies may perform over the next 100 years.
