  • HThalmannNOAA-EPP LMRCSC Master's Fellow 
    M.S., Fisheries Science
    Oregon State University


    Hillary is currently a Ph.D. student in Fisheries Science at Oregon State University - Hatfield Marine Science Center under the advisement of Dr. Jessica Miller. She is studying the effects of temperature and marine heatwaves on the growth and feeding ecology of the early life stages of Pacific Cod in the Gulf of Alaska. She hopes to merge her interests in fisheries ecology, marine heatwaves, ecological modeling, and teaching into a career as a fisheries scientist. Hillary graduated magna cum laude from Western Washington University in June 2018 with a B.S. in Biology (marine emphasis) and a B.A. in English.
