Dr. Bruce Bare is a Professor and Dean Emeritus of the School of Environmental and Forest Sciences. His research interests involve the use of economic and management science tools to problems of forest land use. These problems operate over various spatial and temporal scales ranging from the stand-and-forest-levels to the multi-forest-level and cover time periods of 1-100 years. Emphasis is on the design and application of modern decision support tools to foster sustainable forest management. Valuing nonmarket-based environmental services produced by forests is an important aspect of this research. Each quarter Dean Bare teaches the internet sectiond of Q Sci 190, 291, and 381. bare@u.washington.edu - http://www.sefs.washington.edu/SFRPublic/People/FacultyProfile.aspx?PID=2

Dr. Trevor Branch is an Assistant Professor at the School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences, where he uses computer models to capture the biology and fishing behaviour of marine fisheries. He also works on fishing effects on food webs, the impacts of fishing rights on management, and the modelling of large whale populations. He currently teaches QSCI 458 "Modeling and estimation in conservation and resource management" which teaches students how to implement likelihood-based models to solve real-life terrestrial and marine conservation problems.

Dr. David Briggs is a Professor Emeritus in the School of Environmental and Forest Sciences. His areas of interest include the relationships and connections between silvicultural methods, genetic improvement, wood quality, and product value; the effect of management practices on the carbon balance of forests; and operations research and management science in the forest sector.

Dr. Loveday Conquest is a Professor in the School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences, Adjunct Professor in the School of Environmental and Forest Sciences, and Director of the interdisciplinary graduate program in Quantitative Ecology and Resource Management. Her interests are in the development and application of statistical methodologies in natural resource management. Some of her research has included investigating effects of trawl gear on mortality in Bering Sea crab fisheries, analyses of incidental bird catch data from Puget Sound and Bering Sea fisheries, sampling design for stream networks, and incorporating human judgement into ecological field sampling. Dr. Conquest teaches Q Sci 482 and 486.  conquest@u.washington.edu - http://fish.washington.edu/people/conquest

Dr. Tim Essington is a Professor in the School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences. His research interest is in quantitative ecology, in general, and in the analysis of marine food webs in particular. Dr. Essington teaches Q Sci 454. essing@u.washington.edu - http://fish.washington.edu/people/essington/courses.html

Dr. Vincent Gallucci is the Director of the Center for Quantitative Science, a Professor in the School of Aquatic and Fisheries Sciences, Adjunct Professor in the School of Environmental and Forest Sciences, and a past Wakefield Professor of Ocean and Fishery Sciences. He is also active in the interdisciplinary graduate program in Quantitative Ecology and Resource Management. His research is in apex predators in north Pacific and tropical marine waters. His specialty is in population dynamics and management of sharks and sea lions. Professor Gallucci teaches in the Q Sci calculus and differential equations sequences—Q Sci 291, 292, and 293 and in the statistics sequence—Q Sci 381, 482, and 480.  vgallucc@u.washington.edu - http://fish.washington.edu/people/gallucci

Dr. Frank Greulich is a Professor in the School of Environmental and Forest Sciences. His area of research is in the application of management science and operations research techniques to problems in transportation science. He teaches a variety of courses including some in mathematics, engineering, and management. Dr. Greulich teaches Q Sci 381. greulich@u.washington.edu - http://faculty.washington.edu/greulich/Index.htm

Dr. Ray Hilborn is the Richard C. and Lois M. Worthington Professor of Fisheries Management in the School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences. He specializes in natural resource management and conservation. Major areas of current and past research include Bayesian analysis of decision making in natural resources, adaptive management of renewable resources, the dynamics of the Serengeti ecosystem in east Africa, the role of hatcheries in management of Pacific salmon as well as many others. Dr. Hilborn is connected to the Center through Q Sci 458/Fish 458. rayh@u.washington.edu - http://fish.washington.edu/people/rayh

Dr. Jay Johnson is a Professor Emeritus in the School of Environmental and Forest Sciences. He is interested in mathematical models that capture the essential performance behavior of wood and paper products. Dr. Johnson teaches Q Sci 291 and 292. jjohnson@u.washington.edu - http://www.sefs.washington.edu/SFRPublic/People/FacultyProfile.aspx?PID=14

Dr. André Punt is the Director of the School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences. His main research interests are marine population dynamics, stock assessment methods, risk analysis, and harvesting theory. His current research focuses on the performance of stock assessment methods, application of Bayesian approaches in fisheries assessment and decision analysis, and management strategies for fish and marine mammal populations. Dr. Punt teaches Q Sci 381. aepunt@u.washington.edu - http://fish.washington.edu/people/punt

Dr. John Skalski is a Professor of biological statistics in the School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences with an adjunct appointment in the School of Environmental and Forest Sciences. He is also active in the interdisciplinary graduate program in Quantitative Ecology and Resource Management. His areas of expertise are design and analysis of mark-recapture studies and effects assessment on mobile species. Dr. Skalski teaches Q Sci 480 and 483. jrs@cbr.washington.edu - http://fish.washington.edu/people/skalski

Dr. Eric Turnblom is an Associate Professor in the School of Environmental and Forest Sciences. His research interests include plant population and systems modeling, quantitative silviculture and stand dynamics, forest mensuration, environmental assessment, natural resources inventory, and sampling.
