Research Area

I am interested in the effects climate change has on near shore temperate rocky reefs and how the community dynamics will be altered. I want to understand how we can better prepare and protect our local reef based communities for the future so our fisheries and recreational anglers can sustainable harvest our waters resources. I believe using statistical modeling alongside long-term data sets, like PISCO data, will allow us to unravel these mysteries. Currently much of my work involves subtidal data collection and BRUV video analysis at the Northern Channel Islands.
