Cheryl hiking in Juneau I am a postdoctoral fellow through the Joint Institute for the Study of the Atmosphere and Ocean (JISAO). Currently, I use species distribution models to evaluate biological and ecological responses to rapidly changing conditions in Alaskan waters.

I am generally interested in population/community dynamics (specifically involving groundfishes) and conducting research to inform marine resource management. I value collaboration among academic and agency scientists, resource managers, fishery stakeholders, and students because of its benefits to both process and product.
