Bryce Mecum

I'm a Master's candidate at the University of Alaska Fairbanks School of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences in Juneau, Alaska, USA.

My thesis work focuses on predicting upriver migratory timing of Yukon River Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) using a combination of meteorology, genetics, radiotelemetry, and the inordinate amounts of R code. My work on this topic has developed my interest in how fisheries managers use in-season data to update their expectations about various parameters of the run (e.g. size, timing).

I'm broadly interested in computational aspects in the (biological) sciences. I really like statistics and data visualization.
