Potential Graduate Students

  • I would like to attract MSc and PhD students to work in fisheries oceanography of the California Current System, with particular emphasis on the effects of climate variability and climate change on pelagic fish, squid and krill.
  • You would need to be accepted for graduate school at UCSD,  but you would work at the SWFSC lab at La Jolla.
  • I am especially interested in students who want to takle multidisciplinary problems using the CalCOFI datasets, remote sensing, and fisheries data.
  • I encourage quantitative approaches, the use of instrumentation, and statistical data analysis.
  • I will expect students to master powerful analytical tools like the R statistical language and the NCAR Command Language, and to work with large datasets. You will be strongly encouraged to become expert with the Linux operating system.
  • If you are keen to master new tools, to learn coding, to engage in active learning, to work with a team, and strive for high standards, I'd like to meet you.
  • As a start:
  • Bring any ideas you may have for a project, and we will discuss them in the context of the resources where I work and you will study.
  • Come prepared to discuss your academic background and any work experience, to see what training may help you achieve your goals.
