Cody (PhD 2014) is currently a Fishery Scientist at the University of California, Santa Barbara with the Sustainable Fisheries Group. His current research projects include: developing cost/benefit analyses data-limited and low-value stocks to determine when added management is appropriate, the impacts of fisheries reform in China, understanding how predictable fisheries dynamics are and developing methods to incorporate environmental influences into management of exploited marine resources. He also moonlights as an assessment scientist for the Alaska Fishery Science Center.

During his stay in the Punt lab, Cody worked on a management strategy evaluation for the fishery for snow crab in the Eastern Bering Sea, resulting in the dissertation, “Reaching management objectives given uncertainty: A management strategy evaluation of the eastern Bering Sea snow crab (Chionoecetes opilio).
