Information: Steven joined SPC in March 2014 and is currently a Senior Scientist in the Oceanic Fisheries Programme. Before arriving in Nouméa, Steven alternated international work (South Pacific, Middle East, West Africa) with bouts of educational enlightenment. He obtained his PhD at the University of Washington in 1996. As part of his PhD research, Steven discovered, and named, the Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO), an important mode of interdecadal climate variability. After 17 years working in the chilly North Pacific for the International Pacific Halibut Commission, he has greatly enjoyed the semi-tropical climate of New Caledonia.

Steven’s initial work at SPC was as a National Scientist within the National and Sub-regional Team. In this role, he provided national level advice to SPC member countries on scientific issues related to management of tuna stocks and control of fishing effort. Work in this area included bioeconomic modelling of industrial longline fleets, prediction of tuna catch related to FAD fishing, and heading Stock Assessment Workshops for regional scientists. In 2020, Steven became the Team Leader of the National and Sub-regional team and the focus of his work expanded to providing regional level advice to partner agencies as well as member countries and overseeing the day to day implementation of national and subregional workplans. His greatest passion outside work is hiking in the mountains of New Caledonia, often with his dog, Carlos.
