Marine Population Dynamics

My research seeks to understand the drivers of change in coastal marine ecosystems, which lie at the interface between land and sea. I use a wide range of quantitative methods to understand how and why populations fluctuate, increase or decline. My work helps to inform the management of harvested marine species, and predicts how populations will respond to natural perturbations, climate change, and degradation of natural ecosystems.

Prospective Students

I welcome inquiries from highly motivated, hard-working students with strong quantitative skills, who are driven by research questions. If you are interested in working with me, please see “information for prospective students” on my lab group website.
