Welcome to my website!
I grew up in Alaska, spent summers commercial fishing in Prince William Sound, and found my way into fisheries science by counting salmon in Bristol Bay for the Alaska Department of Fish and Game.
My research is aimed at connecting science and management, and is motivated by the belief that the ecological, cultural, and economic aspects of fisheries are equally important. I utilize evolutionary theory, quantitative methods, and field studies to answer questions about the causes and consequences of life-history diversity within populations.
Please see my CV for more information.
