  • Seabird ecology
  • Population analysis
  • Oceanography
  • Threatened and endangered species consultations
  • Outreach

Adrian came to ABR with a background in population biology of nesting seabirds and the use of seabirds as indicators of marine conditions in Alaska, Hawai'i, the Lower 48, and in Mexico.

Since joining ABR in 2005, she has focused on movements and habitat use of seabirds, waterfowl, shorebirds, and marine mammals in terrestrial and marine environments. Her fieldwork has involved residency and outreach in rural Alaska villages and, as a result, she has good working relationships with Alaskan Native communities. In July 2015, Adrian successfully defended her dissertation at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, where she studied the influence of oceanography on the seabird community in the Chukchi Sea from 2008 through 2012. Her research was a part of the Chukchi Sea Environmental Studies Program, jointly funded by ConocoPhillips, Statoil, and Shell.

In addition to her research duties, Adrian was named Director of Research in 2017 and President in 2021. She supervises ABR’s scientific staff and is responsible for the technical quality of all work conducted by ABR.
