Ian Taylor is a native of the Pacific Northwest. He received his B.A. in Mathematics from Carleton College in 1997. He then taught mathematics in rural Zimbabwe for the U.S. Peace Corps before returning to Seattle to attend graduate school at the University of Washington. Ian received a Ph.D. in the Quantitative Ecology and Resource Management in 2008. His work under Dr. Vincent Gallucci focused on the population dynamics of Spiny Dogfish in the N.E. Pacific, including estimating movement and abundance, patterns of tagging data, and alternative measures of stock status. Ian joined the NWFSC as a post-doc in 2008 working with Drs. Richard Methot and André Punt. In 2010, Ian joined the stock assessment team at the NOAA Northwest Fisheries Science Center in Seattle
