Jeffrey Runge holds a Ph.D. in Oceanography, with a research specialty in zooplankton ecology, from the University of Washington. He was a Killam Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Oceanography at Dalhousie University, then a research scientist at the Université Laval in Quebec, where he studied coupling between ice algal blooms and pelagic ecosystem productivity in Hudson Bay. For fifteen years he worked for the Canadian Department of Fisheries and Oceans at the Institut Maurice Lamontagne in Mont-Joli, Quebec, where he headed a section studying secondary production and fisheries recruitment processes in coastal waters of eastern Canada. He was research professor in the Institute for the Study of Earth, Oceans and Space at the University of New Hampshire before becoming a faculty member in the University of Maine’s School of Marine Sciences at the Gulf of Maine Research Institute. He has been involved in research associated with both the Canadian and U.S. GLOBEC (Global Ocean Ecosystem Dynamics) programs.
