Past Postdoctoral Fellow
Christine was a postdoctoral researcher with a joint appointment at the School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences at the University of Washington and the Alaska Fisheries Science Center at NOAA. Christine earned her PhD in Quantitative Ecology and Resource Management in 2017 working with Dr. Tim Essington. Her PhD research focused on how variation in somatic growth can impact population dynamics and management. Upon graduation, she began her postdoc. She is working with Andre, Dr.s Buck Stockhausen and Robert Foy at NOAA’s AFSC, and Dr. Cody Szuwalski at UCSB to devise an individual-based model for Alaska snow crab (Chionoecetes opilio ). This model will be used to provide predictions for how climate change might impact snow crab across a range of scenarios. More information about Christine can be found on her individual website.
