Over the last twenty years she has participated in over 33 oceanographic expeditions on both US and foreign vessels, many as Chief Scientist, and she is the overall project lead scientist for the U.S. Western Arctic Shelf-Basin Interactions project, which is one of the largest U.S. funded global change studies now underway in the Arctic.

She is the U.S. delegate to the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC), a current member of the U.S. Polar Research Board of the National Academies, and served formerly as a member of the U.S. Arctic Research Commission following appointment by President Clinton. Her research includes studies of pelagic-benthic (ocean floor) coupling in marine systems, benthic carbon cycling, benthic faunal population structure, and polar ecosystem health, and she has published over 60 peer-reviewed scientific papers. A recent study in which she was lead author that was published in Science provides some of the first direct evidence for biological community responses to warming and oceanographic shifts in the Bering Sea ecosystem and she has also served as editor of several books and journal special issues.
