Parker MacCready (MS '86)

I'm at the same job I have had my whole career, studying physical oceanography.  Lately my work has become more applied, developing realistic forecasts models of Ocean Acidification and Harmful Algal Blooms that are used by shellfish growers (http://faculty.washington.edu/pmacc/LO/LiveOcean.html).  The beauty and mysteries of fluid mechanics still hold my attention, so it's a good job.  My wife, Molly, and I live out in the country near Olympia, WA.  Our children are moving along: Jillian just graduated from Claremont McKenna, and Henry starts as a Freshman at Occidental in the Fall.
