Emily Klein, Ph.D.

Emily's interests focus on understanding long-term change in marine ecosystem dynamics and structure, and applying diverse and innovative modeling approaches for contemporary management challenges. Her graduate research used time series analysis and nonlinear modeling approaches as well as first-hand accounts from fishermen and marine managers in the late 1800s and early 1900s to understand change and resilience over time in the Bay of Fundy. With collaborators, she used agent-based models to better understand fishermen behavior and how their decisions are impacted by ecosystem conditions, marine management, and existing social ties. Emily holds a B.Sc. from UC San Diego and an M.Sc. and Ph.D. from the University of New Hampshire, and currently serves as co-chair for the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES); Working Group on the History of Fish and Fisheries.
