Biography

Growing up in Southcentral Alaska, Joel was continuously exposed to the outdoors and fisheries. After graduating from Bartlett High School in Anchorage, he pursued a growing passion for fisheries by attending Montana State University in Bozeman, MT, where he received a B.S. in Fish and Wildlife Management while honing his skiing and fly fishing skills. This newfound knowledge allowed Joel to work various fisheries jobs all over Alaska, traveling to exotic places all while under the context of 'work.' After spending time in places like Katmai, Aniakchak, Kenai Fjords, Denali, the Tongass, and Wrangell St. Elias he decided to pursue a graduate degree in Marine Biology from the University of Alaska Fairbanks where he used SCUBA to study the nearshore fish and habitat complexity in Kachemak Bay.

Before coming to the UA system, Joel was a research fisheries biologist with the Kachemak Bay Research Reserve in Homer. While there he studied marine ecology and questions pertaining to fish habitat use in the nearshore environment. Joel also coordinated a nationwide water quality and meteorological monitoring project and worked on a hardshell clam recruitment and growth study focused on determining the timing of spawning, recruitment and growth of pacific littleneck clams.

Joel has been with the Fisheries Technology Program since 2013 when he was an outreach coordinator and adjunct faculty at the Homer campus. In his free time, Joel enjoys backcountry skiing, fishing, sailing, is an avid SCUBA diver and dive instructor, and generally likes spending time outside. He is passionate about teaching and Alaskan fisheries.
