Past Postdoctoral Fellow
Pamela Woods did her bachelor’s degree in Biology with a specialization in Marine Science before moving to Seattle to do her Master’s work with Dr. Ted Pietsch and her doctoral work with Dr. Tom Quinn. Her Ph.D. was a joint degree obtained from the University of Washington and University of Iceland, the first of its kind at UW, and focused on ecology and diversity of Arctic charr in Alaska and Iceland. Her post-doctoral work was completed at the University of Iceland with a year-long position as a visiting post-doc in the Punt lab, working with André and Dr. Daniel Holland at the Northwest Fisheries Science Center. This post-doc focused on analyzing regulations in the Icelandic fisheries management system that allow quota to be transformed between species in a bioeconomic model, and was funded by the Nordic Centre for Research on Marine Ecosystems and Resources under Climate Change (NorMER). Currently she is completing a National Science Foundation post-doctoral grant with Dr. Gunnar Stefánsson at the University of Iceland to analyze fast area closures, a form of real-time spatial management, as they are used in the Icelandic fisheries management system, and compare their utility between demersal fisheries in the northeast of U.S. and Iceland.
