My research interests are broadly focused on fishery ecology, population dynamics and stock assessment. In particular I am interested in: 1) Modeling the dynamics of fish populations and understanding the ecological, geo-chemical, and physical processes that influence their structure in space and time; 2) developing statistical methods to assess the spawning stock biomass of coastal pelagic species; 3) understanding patterns of recruitment as related to retrospective habitat use for the purpose of quantifying the vital rates of fish populations, modeling their life history, and enhancing their management and conservation.

Heidi Dewar received her Ph.D. in marine biology from Scripps Institution of Oceanography in 1993. Her thesis focused on the physiology of tropical tunas. Since that time Dr. Dewar has focused her efforts on the development and application of electronic tagging technologies with the goal of asking more complex questions about fish in their natural environment. She has used a range of satellite, archival and acoustic tags to study fish from manta rays and billfish to tunas and sharks. Her main interest is in the interplay between physiology and environment in determining the movements and behaviors of fish. Heidi works with the team in the highly migratory species division collecting biological data in support of management
