I'm Christine, a third-year graduate student in the Quantitative Ecology and Resource Management (QERM) program. I'm working with Tim Essington on estimating patterns of variability in groundfish growth and identifying potential drivers of this variability. My research interests include Bayesian statistics, estimating the effect of climate change and large-scale climate fluctuations on marine ecosystems, and incorporating ecosystem interactions into fisheries stock assessments. I'd be happy to talk to potential graduate students about the QERM program; email is the best way to contact me.
