Kristen completed a PhD in biology at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, BC, Canada. She is an evolutionary ecologist that has worked on wildlife systems from waterfowl of western Alaska to Antarctic seabirds. Her dissertation research examined demographic mechanisms underlying Pygoscelis penguin breeding population response to variability in sea ice food-webs of the Southern Ocean. Here at the PWSSC, Kristen is leading the stream component of the Hatchery-Wild Salmon Interactions Program and the juvenile herring energetics component of the Herring Research and Monitoring Program. Her research integrates ecological field studies with laboratory data such as biogeochemical (stable isotopes), physiological (hormones, toxicology), and genetic (population structure) markers to better understand factors affecting animal performance in reproduction and survival.
