Using submersibles and ROV's, Dr. Young has worked for more than 30 years on the biology of deep-sea invertebrates, with an emphasis on reproductive biology and larval development. His publication record includes more than 160 works and spans most major invertebrate phyla. He has served as an Editor of Advances in Marine Biology, as a Member of the Editorial Board of Invertebrate biology, and is currently an Associate Editor of Marine Ecology: An Evolutionary Perspective. Currently, Young is a Member of the US Deep Submergence Science Committee (DESSC) for UNOLS, a Steering Committee Member of the Chemosynthetic Ecosystems (ChEss) Section of the Census of Marine Life, a Member of the Scientific and Technical Advisory Committee for the Oregon Ocean Policy Advisory Committee, a Member of the Management Commission for the South Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve, and the Chair of the Fellowship Committee for the Pacific Institutes of Marine Science.
