Dr. Jeff Drazen is a professor in the Department of Oceanography in the School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology at the University of Hawai’i at Manoa (UHM). Dr. Drazen is recognized internationally for his research on food-webs and communities of the open ocean and deep sea, particularly fishes. He studies the energetic strategies of deep-sea fishes, identified important pathways in deep-sea food webs, and explored the ecology of hadal trenches, the deepest ecosystem on earth. His research has helped evaluate the environmental risks of deep-sea mining, a topic of critical interest as companies and countries look to the ocean to supply battery metals needed for the “green transition.”
He has authored and coauthored over 130 scientific articles and book chapters, and has participated in more than 60 research cruises with over 1000 days at sea, often as chief scientist.
