Pinniped Ecology Applied Research Lab: Investigates the ecology, behavior and physiology of pinnipeds (seals, sea lions, and walrus). Pinniped stocks and population trends are analyzed in relation to predator-prey interactions, anthropogenic (man made) and natural variations in environmental conditions.

Seasonal and spatial blubber-depth changes in captive harbor seals (Phoca vitulina) and Steller’s sea lions (Eumetopias jubatus)

Physiological and behavioral response to intra-abdominal transmitter implantation in Steller sea lions

Designing a dependable and fault-tolerant semiautonomous distributed control data collection network with opportunistic hierarchy

Three-dimensional photogrammetry as a tool for estimating morphometrics and body mass of Steller sea lions (Eumetopias jubatus)

Effects of increased swimming costs on foraging behavior and efficiency of captive Steller sea lions: evidence for behavioral plasticity in the recovery phase of dives

Temporary captivity as a research tool: Comprehensive study of wild pinnipeds under controlled conditions

Spatial variation of heat flux in Steller sea lions: evidence for consistent avenues of heat exchange along the body trunk

Designing an archival satellite transmitter for life-long deployments on oceanic vertebrates: The Life History Transmitter
