Peter has more than 30 years of experience in applications of mathematics and statistics to fisheries biology. Peter has been responsible for maintenance and continued development of the EACH simulation model for San Joaquin Chinook salmon populations since 1989, and has developed or assisted in the development of numerous other models for populations of various species of salmonid fishes (including individual-based models of spawning habitat usage) in California, Oregon, and Montana. His expertise also includes experimental design and applied statistics. He is co-developer of Stillwater’s BasinTemp model for predicting cumulative effects of watershed management actions on water temperature throughout a stream network and of the RIPPLE model, which links alterations in physical processes and habitats to salmonid population responses.
