IMPROVING THE COLLECTION, MANAGEMENT, AND USE OF MARINE FISHERIES DATA APPENDIX A Committee Biographies Patrick Sullivan chaired the committee. He earned a Ph.D. in biostatistics from the University of Washington in 1988. Dr. Sullivan is currently an assistant professor in the Department of Natural Resources at Cornell University. Prior to that, he served for ten years as a staff scientist for the International Pacific Halibut Commission. His research interests include the assessment and management of fisheries resources and the statistical modeling of biological systems. Kenneth Able earned a Ph.D. in biological oceanography at the College of William and Mary in 1974. He is currently a professor at Rutgers University and director of Rutgers's Tuckerton Marine Field Station. Dr. Able 's research interests include life history, ecology, and behavior of fishes; recruitment processes; and habitat structure and function. He is a pioneer in the study of the biology of summer flounder. Cynthia Jones earned a Ph.D. in oceanography from University of Rhode Island in 1984. Dr. Jones is currently a professor of biology at Old Dominion University. Her main areas of research are fisheries and population ecology; she works extensively with recreational fisheries data. Karen M. Kaye earned an M.S. in computer systems management from the University of Maryland in 1996. She has worked for the federal government and private industry for the past 20 years and is presently the information systems coordinator at the U.S. Geological Survey. Barbara Knuth earned a Ph.D. in fisheries and wildlife sciences from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University in 1986. She is currently an associate professor and unit co-leader in the Human Dimensions Research Unit of Cornell University's Department of Natural Resources. Dr. Knuth 's research focuses on integrating human dimensions information and techniques into natural resource decision-making processes, program evaluation, and fisheries management. Brenda L. Norcross earned her Ph.D. in marine science from the College of William and Mary in 1983. She is an associate professor at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks. Dr. Norcross' pri-

IMPROVING THE COLLECTION, MANAGEMENT, AND USE OF MARINE FISHERIES DATA mary areas of expertise include fisheries oceanography, fish habitat, and the influence of ocean conditions on distribution and recruitment of larval and juvenile fish, especially of flatfish species. Estelle Russek-Cohen earned a Ph.D. in biostatistics from the University of Washington in 1979. She is currently a professor at the University of Maryland. Dr. Russek-Cohen's research interests include statistical methodology, analyzing experimental and survey data, and multivariate and bioassay methods. John Sibert earned a Ph.D. in zoology from Columbia University in 1968. He is currently manager of the Pelagic Fisheries Research Program at the University of Hawaii, Honolulu. His research interests include fisheries oceanography, statistics, and the inclusion of spatial heterogeneity in population dynamics models. Stephen Joseph Smith earned an M.Sc. degree in statistics from the University of Guelph, Canada, in 1979. He is currently a research scientist for the Canadian Department of Fisheries and Oceans at the Bedford Institute of Oceanography. His primary research interests are in the field of resource management and modeling of marine fisheries, with a concentration in statistics. Steven K. Thompson earned a Ph.D. in statistics from Oregon State University in 1982. He is currently an associate professor at Pennsylvania State University. Dr. Thompson's research interests include sampling theory and methods, environmental statistics, statistics of hidden populations, adaptive sampling, and general issues in design and inference. Richard D. Young earned a Ph.D. in economics from the University of California, Santa Barbara, in 1979. He participates in the Pacific Coast groundfish, crab, and shrimp fisheries as the owner and operator of the fishing vessel City of Eureka and the owner of the Willola, both based in Crescent City, California. Dr. Young has participated in a variety of research and management activities related to fisheries and is presently a member of the Scientific and Statistical Committee of the Pacific Fishery Management Council. Consultant John G. Pope earned a B.Sc. in mathematics from the University of London (U.K.) in 1962. He spent much of his career at the Lowestoft Fisheries Laboratory before taking early retirement in 1997. Mr. Pope has taken a leading role in the fisheries science of the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea. He is currently a Professor II at the Universitetet i Tromsø, Norway, and director of NRC (Europe), Ltd.
