JUVENILE SALMON HABITATSeattle Lab, NOAA-Fisheries/Signal to Noise Consulting
I simulated juvenile distributions in a stream network using a system of sto-
chastic differential equations. I used a k-means clustering algorithm to iden-
tify when the spatial distributions of different juvenile groups merged. In an-
other project, I applied several ordination analyses to a dataset describing
salmon habitat. There were over 32 variates that were expected to organize
into a few multivariate descriptors of habitat quality. Using several ordination
methods, I was able to show that the expected patterns were in fact not pre-
sent, and uncover some of the reasons for this behavior. In another, exten-
sive project, I prepared for analysis a large data set of spatial y distributed
fish and habitat information. I conducted an extensive exploratory analysis
and guided client scientists through a modeling process. Ultimately, I imple-
mented a zero-inflated, multilevel logistic regression model using the lme4
package in R. Model results are being applied to endangered species man-
DATA FLOW IN NATURAL RESOURCES MANAGEMENTSeattle Lab, NOAA-Fisheries
In col aboration with a database manger col eague, we conducted a survey of
natural resource scientists that work with monitoring data. We used the sur-
vey results to il ustrate how problems in data management were negatively
impacting science productivity throughout the natural resources field. Our
final report presented several solutions gleaned from a review of the litera-
MATERNAL EFFECTS IN ROCKFISHUC Santa Cruz/Santa Cruz and Seattle Labs, NOAA-Fisheries
For my PhD, I developed an extensive simulation based on a novel popula-
tion model for maternal effects in rockfish. The model was a non-linear sys-
tem of ODEs. I wrote a numerical solver based on a Predictor-Corrector algo-
rithm. I simulated hundreds of population trajectories and summarized the
outcomes with complex graphics, linear regression and time series analysis.
SPECIES-ABUNDANCE CURVES IN TROPICAL REEF FISHSeattle Lab, NOAA-Fisheries
I supported the work of a col eague by developing a novel model for species-
abundance curves. The model was based on a summation of the probability
density function of the multinomial distribution. This was used to identify sites
with unusual y large diversity from a database of tropical reef fish.
STOCK ASSESSMENTSanta Cruz Lab, NOAA-Fisheries
In Fisheries Science, a stock assessment is an extensive statistical analysis
performed by teams to assess the population status of a managed fish spe-
cies. I supported the assessment of Shortbel y Rockfish by providing several
alternative models and calculations for the rate of natural mortality. I pre-
pared the data for the assessment of California Halibut. Data prep included
several analytical steps, including applying a GLM-based filtering tool. The
initial data for this assessment was too large to load into the R workspace. I
developed several strategies for performing analyses on data subsets and
pooling results together for a summary data set. This was my first experience
