Milani Chaloupka runs Ecological Modeling Services Pty Ltd., an international research company that provides statistical and mathematical consulting on ecological and economic issues for a wide array of groups, including industry, government, academe, and nongovernmental organizations. Dr. Chaloupka has a Ph.D. in marine ecology from the University of Queensland in Australia. His expertise is in statistical and mathematical modeling of complex ecological systems, including the development of interactive stochastic computer simulations of endangered-species population dynamics. He is the chair of the Sea Turtle Advisory Committee of the Western Pacific Regional Fishery Management Council, chair of the Marine Turtle Red List Authority, and vice-chair of the Marine Turtle Specialist Group.


Larry B. Crowder is a professor of marine ecology at the Nicholas School for the Environment of Duke University. He completed his doctoral studies in zoology at Michigan State University. Dr. Crowder’s research centers on predation and food-web interactions, mechanisms underlying recruitment variation in fish, and population modeling in conservation biology. Dr. Crowder is currently engaged in more extensive programs in marine conservation, including endangered species and fishery conflicts, especially bycatch in fishing gear. Dr. Crowder is a former member of the Ocean Studies Board and has served on several National Research Council committees.


Selina S. Heppell is an associate professor in the Department of Fisheries and Wildlife at Oregon State University. She earned a Ph.D. in zoology from Duke University. Dr. Heppell’s research focuses on sea turtles, sharks, sturgeon, and U.S. west coast rockfish, primarily using computer models and simulations to understand how populations respond to human activities and to guide research and management policy toward their recovery. She was an Aldo Leopold Leadership Program Fellow in 2006.


Cynthia M. Jones is a professor, an eminent scholar, and the director of the Center for Quantitative Fisheries Ecology at Old Dominion University. She received a Ph.D. in oceanography from the University of Rhode Island. Dr. Jones is a recognized expert in fishery ecology and population dynamics, and her recent research has explored such topics as elemental analysis of adult and juvenile fish to investigate natal homing and connectivity in a marine fish metapopulation. She has served on the Ocean Studies Board and several National Research Council committees.
