Research Interests

My research focuses on the ecology of fishes and invertebrates in primarily estuarine and nearshore marine environments. I examine the relative importance of natural versus human-induced regulation of populations and assemblages, particularly with regard to climate change, over-harvesting, invasive species, and exposure to contaminants. This work typically involves statistical exploration of historical data-sets to guide laboratory and field investigations on recruitment success, age and growth, mortality and reproductive success.
