Hans has worked since 2010 as an aquatic and fisheries biologist in coastal environments and freshwater systems in Washington and Alaska. He focuses on ecological analyses, particularly for nearshore fish and invertebrate communities. Hans combines his technical knowledge with project management expertise to deliver a wide variety of environmental projects. He has strong environmental compliance experience, leading teams of marine mammal and marbled murrelet observers as well as conducting water quality monitoring for in-water construction projects.

Examples of Hans’s project activities include the following:

  • Successfully managing construction oversight projects, including directing environmental compliance efforts for the Navy and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in some of the largest in-water construction projects in the Pacific Northwest.
  • Conducting fieldwork – including fish exclusion, forage fish spawn sampling, water quality monitoring, and nearshore fish and benthic invertebrate surveys – for permitting and restoration projects.
  • Preparing marine mammal (National Marine Fisheries Service) and marbled murrelet (U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service) monitoring plans and Incidental Harassment Authorization applications for in-water construction projects.

“Hans provided excellent leadership and clear direction for my project. His steadfastness towards safety and quality provided a high benchmark for the project team.”
