I am a postdoctoral scholar through the Cooperative Institute for Climate, Ocean, and Ecosystem Studies (CICOES). I am generally interested in conducting research to inform marine resource management. I value collaboration among academic and agency scientists, resource managers, fishery stakeholders, and students because of its benefit to both process and product. Much of my work has focused on better understanding population and community dynamics of groundfishes in the North Pacific. Currently, I use statistical models to evaluate biological and ecological responses to rapidly changing conditions in Alaskan waters.
