Grant (he/him/his) is a PhD student in the School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences at the University of Washington. He earned a BSc in Biology from Denison University in 2011 and a MS in Coastal Sciences from the University of Southern Mississippi Gulf Coast Research Laboratory in 2017. For his master’s, he studied the ecology and dynamics of Gulf Menhaden (Brevoortia patronus) and Sheepshead (Archosargus probatocephalus).  Between his undergrad and master’s, Grant served in the Peace Corps as a community based environmental management volunteer in the Central Andes of Peru and as a research assistant with the Instituto del Mar del Peru (IMARPE).  His current work ​​aims to adapt multi-species climate enhanced, age-based stock assessment model to the Gulf of Alaska groundfish fishery.
