Bio

Dr. Hood began his research career as a biological oceanographer when he was an undergraduate at the University of Washington, studying harmful algae blooms in Puget Sound, Washington State.  He has since conducted research in coastal and open ocean environments all over the world, including the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans and both the east and west coasts of North America.  Presently his research is focused primarily on using models to simulate and predict biogeochemical and ecological variability in marine environments.
