Jean V Adams

I provide statistical support to research scientists at the US Geological Survey Great Lakes Science Center and to the bi-national Great Lakes Fishery Commission. This support extends to the sea lamprey control agents of the US Fish and Wildlife Service and Fisheries and Oceans Canada.

I am particularly interested in data visualization to aid in understanding complex systems.
