Current Activities
Jeff joined Auke Bay Laboratories in 2008 and serves as the Genetics Program Manager overseeing scientific studies at Little Port Walter, Auke Creek Weir, and ABL Genetics Laboratory. His team conducts a wide variety of life history and genetics studies using the latest molecular techniques to identify stock structures and genetic characteristics of various salmonid and forage fishes. Research at Auke Creek Weir in Juneau Alaska is coordinated by John Joyce who is correlating environmental conditions to salmon returns and collaborating with the University of Alaska School of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences on the potential effects of sockeye salmon supplementation. Frank Thrower is coordinating research regarding steelhead and Chinook salmon inbreeding and outbreeding depression at Little Port Walter, a remote NMFS field facility on Baranof Island. Within the genetics laboratory, Chris Kondzela performs genetic analysis on chum salmon caught as bycatch in the Bering Sea groundfish fishery; Sharon Wildes determines stock structure of Alaskan forage fishes; Andy Gray performs genetic analysis for identifying family structure in Chinook salmon; Chuck Guthrie performs stock assessments for sockeye salmon caught in the Northern Boundary region; Hanhvan Nguyen isolates DNA from our genetic samples; Tyler McCraney helps investigate population structure of groundfish and stock composition of salmon; and Colby Marvin helps investigate stock composition of the Chinook and chum salmon bycatch. The ABL Genetics Program is actively collaborating with the NW Fisheries Science Center, Alaska Department of Fish and Game, and many universities.

Jeff has a Ph.D. in biochemistry from the University of Notre Dame, and an undergraduate degree in mathematics from the U.S. Coast Guard Academy. He did his post-doctoral fellowship in the Laboratory of Louis Kunkel at Children’s Hospital Boston, where he developed zebrafish models of human muscle disease. Before moving to Juneau, Jeff worked with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game Gene Conservation Laboratory. He has published 20 papers concerning biochemistry and genetics.
