Abstract:

The focal area of my research is population dynamics of fish and zooplankton in the context of climate and anthropogenic-driven environmental variability. I seek to probe mechanisms and processes underlying the dynamics and trophic interactions among marine organisms using lab-, field-, and model-based approaches. In this talk I focus on case studies conducted in the Gulf of Alaska, Northern California Current, Georges Bank and the Gulf of Mexico to introduce my research 1) zooplankton in relation to oceanographic processes and climate change, 2) trophic interactions between zooplankton and fish related to environmental variability, 3) predictive understanding of dynamics of fish stocks in terms of assessments and management of fisheries resources, and 4) monitoring of zooplankton community in estuaries and coastal waters in preparation for rapid response to large-scale natural and human-induced disasters and subsequent ecosystem restorations. The integrative research has ecosystem implications for management and conservation of marine living resources at broad ranges of temporal and spatial scales in a changing world.

Bio:

Dr. Hui Liu received his Ph.D. in Oceanography and MS in Statistics from the University of Alaska Fairbanks in 2006 and 2008 respectively. He joined the Department of Marine Biology of Texas A&M University at Galveston as an Assistant Professor in 2012. He is a member of the Faculty of Marine Biology, Graduate Faculty of Oceanography of Texas A&M University. He has taught Biostatistics and Seminar in Marine Biology at undergraduate levels and has co-taught Advanced Concepts in Marine Biology at graduate levels. Dr. Liu's research focuses on population dynamics of fish and zooplankton in the context of climate and anthropogenic-driven environmental variability to probe mechanisms and processes underlying the dynamics and interactions among marine organisms using lab, field, and modelling approaches. He has received over $ 1.8 million in external funding from NSF and NOAA. He has published 29 peer-reviewed journal articles and has chaired two Ph.D. students and two MS students. He organized a symposium at 2017 American Fisheries Society annual meeting, and currently serves as a U.S. representative on the North Pacific Marine Science Organization (PICES) workgroup 37 on zooplankton production.
