Associate Research Scholar, Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences Program
I am a biological oceanographer with a strong focus on the analysis of global change impacts using satellite oceanography and Bayesian analysis. My main interest lies at the study of physical-biological coupling on planktonic systems and how these effects propagate up through marine food webs. I rely primarily on statistical and mechanistic modeling of satellite and population data to pursue these topics, combining techniques from spatial statistics, time series modeling and population ecology.
Nereus fellow Fernando Gonzalez Taboada from Princeton University writes about how the painting ‘And They Still Say Fish are Expensive!’ by Joaquín Sorolla is still relevant to modern fishing culture and practices, as well as different approaches to predicting future fish abundance in the ocean.
