Devin Johnson currently serves as both a research statistician and consulting statistician for MML's Alaska Ecosystem Program. Devin's research projects include investigations of state-space methods for modeling marine mammal movement via satellite telemetry data. Devin is also investigating capture-recapture models that incorporate dependent rates of double tag-loss for estimating northern fur seal life history parameters. Devin serves as a statistical consultant for a number of Steller sea lion and northern fur seal projects, as well as various other MML projects including harbor seal and humpback whale studies.


Devin is a statistician with research interests that include Bayesian statistics, animal resource selection, animal telemetry models, space-time models, capture-recapture models, Monte Carlo methods in statistics, and statistical problems in ecology. He has been with the Alaska Ecosystems Program since 2005. Prior to coming to NMML Devin held an assistant professor position at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. Devin holds a B.S. in wildlife biology (University of Alaska Fairbanks, 1996) an M.S. in statistics (Colorado State University, 2001) and Ph.D. in statistics (Colorado State University, 2003).
