Stephanie Moore, PhD is a project scientist with the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research and a visiting scientist with NOAA’s Northwest Fisheries Science Center. Stephanie conducts research to develop ecological forecasts for outbreaks of harmful algal blooms and pathogens that threaten seafood safety, public health and the economic value of fisheries. She uses high-resolution climate and weather information as well as novel biosensors to gain a predictive understanding of the organisms that cause these outbreaks and how they interact with the marine environment. She also leads the efforts of wide range of stakeholders under the umbrella of the Puget Sound Partnership to improve transparency, data sharing and communication of relevant marine waters monitoring programs in Puget Sound. Stephanie earned her PhD from the University of New South Wales, Australia in 2005. She completed her postdoctoral training with the University of Washington’s Climate Impacts Group and the School of Oceanography 2005-2008. Stephanie was co-author of a 2010 paper in Food Research International: Climate change and seafood safety: Human health implications. nwfsc.noaa.gov ucar.edu
