Jennifer Reynolds is Associate Professor of Geological Oceanography in UAF's School of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences. She holds a B.A. in Earth Science from Dartmouth College and a Ph.D. in Geological Sciences from Columbia University (Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory), where she studied volcanism at mid-ocean ridge plate boundaries. During postdoctoral research positions at the U.S. Geological Observatory's Hawaii Volcano Observatory and the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute, she gained broader experience in volcanism at ocean islands and in the deep sea. Since moving to Alaska in 2000, her research has focused on application of geological oceanography to seafloor habitat studies in the Alaska region, particularly habitat for groundfish and deep sea corals. This research is highly interdisciplinary and involves collaboration with fisheries scientists and marine biologists. Dr. Reynolds teaches geological oceanography, and has supervised graduate students in Oceanography, Fisheries, and Geology. She also serves as Associate Director of the West Coast & Polar Regions Undersea Research Center, a regional center in NOAA's Undersea Research Program (NURP). The Center supports undersea research and technological innovation in marine ecosystems and marine resource management. Dr. Reynolds was appointed as a UAF representative to Faculty Alliance in 2009.
