Janet Duffy-Anderson, Ph.D.

Chief Scientific Officer

Dr. Janet Duffy-Anderson is a fisheries research biologist and marine ecosystem ecologist who has worked in large marine systems around the United States including the middle Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico, the California Current system, the North Pacific, Gulf of Alaska, Bering Sea, and the US High Arctic. She served as the Program Manager for the Recruitment Processes Program at the NOAA Fisheries Alaska Fisheries Science Center and co-Lead for the NOAA’s Ecosystem and Fisheries Oceanography and Coordinated Investigations Program since 2015. Prior to that she served as a Principal Investigator at the Alaska Fisheries Science Center. She received her BS at Lafayette College (1990), her PhD at the University of Delaware, College of the Earth, Ocean, and Environment (1996), and conducted postdoctoral work at Rutgers University and the University of Washington. Dr. Duffy-Anderson has extensive experience in marine science including expertise in fisheries recruitment, fisheries oceanography, climate-ecosystem interactions, population connectivity, and fish early life history dynamics. For over two decades, Janet has worked to develop mechanistic approaches to understanding how climate mediates fisheries population variability, trophic shifts, and ecosystem change. She applies that understanding to the sustainable management of fisheries and ecosystems.
