Fish ecology, ecosystems, fisheries and management

Research Interests

I am interested in (1) understanding the influence of environmental variables on growth and survival of individuals and populations, (2) elucidating the temporal and spatial structure and function of ecosystems, and (3) determining the best management policies given the environmental constraints on growth, survival and geographic distributions of fish.

Currently I work on historical ecology of the northwestern Atlantic, movements and management of Atlantic sturgeon and river herring, and spatial aspects of marine ecosystems including how to best design protected areas.
