Dr. Rose is the France-Merrick Professor in Sustainable Ecosystem Restoration at Horn Point Laboratory of the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science. Prior to coming to UMCES, Dr. Rose was a professor at Louisiana State University and a research staff member at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. His research centers on using mathematical and computer simulation modeling to predict and better understand fish population and food web dynamics in estuaries, lakes, reservoirs, and oceans. He has been a member of multiple steering and advisory committees providing scientific guidance and oversight, including for the National Science Foundation, California Delta Science Program, United States GLOBEC Program, and US Army Corps of Engineers. Recently, Dr. Rose served as member of the National Academy of Sciences’ Committees on Sustainable Water and Environmental Management in the CA Bay-Delta, Evaluating the Effectiveness of NOAA’s (Fisheries) Stock Rebuilding Plans, Review of the Edwards Aquifer Habitat Conservation Program, and Effective Monitoring to Evaluate Ecological Restoration in the Gulf of Mexico. Dr. Rose was recently awarded the Award of Excellence (for lifetime achievement) from the American Fisheries Society.
