About Dr. Judith Pederson
Dr. Pederson is the Marine Advisory Services Leader and she coordinates the Gulf of Maine Regional Ocean Science Initiative. An international expert on marine invasive species, her research focuses on the “biopollution” of marine bioinvasions in near-shore and offshore areas of the Gulf of Maine and Georges Bank. In addition to her research over the past 20 years, Pederson has further contributed to water-quality monitoring, clean-up efforts in Boston Harbor and other areas of Massachusetts, and the disposal of contaminated marine sediments. Prior to joining MIT Sea Grant in 1995, Pederson worked as a coastal ecologist at the Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management.
