I am a fisheries ecologist working on the Secure Fisheries Project at the One Earth Future Foundation and at the Josef Korbel School of International Studies at the University of Denver.  My research investigates the ecology and population dynamics of fishes and the coupled natural-human feedbacks that structure fisheries. The goal of my research is to improve management and conservation of fish populations by improving predictions of changes in ecosystems.  I investigate:

– Complex dynamics and forecasting of ecological communities
– Socio-ecological feedbacks in fishery systems
– Food web ecology and predator-prey dynamics
