AND PROFESSIONALLY RELATED SCHOLARLY AND CREATIVE ACTIVITIES
Areas of special interest and accomplishments in discipline:
have been heavily involved in the development of rapid techniques for teaching
mathematical modelling to biologists and resource managers, using
and seminars. I have conducted over two dozen three to ten day workshops in the
years, first for the International Canadian Fisheries Service, US Fish and
Wildlife Service, and
International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis.
main research work now is on the theory of harvesting in natural resource
management. I have
on applications of stochastic optimal control theory to the analysis of
environments, and my chief interest is in the basic problem of how to behave
the face of extreme uncertainty.
also maintain an active field research program on the responses of aquatic
such as removal of selective species by introduced fish populations and
productivity through fertilization.
