Professional Experience

Research Interests

Research is concentrated in areas that further our understanding of the population dynamics of fishery resources. Investigations focus on identifying and understanding processes which underlie recruitment variability in marine and estuarine fishes. Specifically, the influence of abiotic factors and biotic interactions on growth and mortality of juvenile fishes has been examined. Additionally, our laboratory conducts applied research that directly addresses assessment and management of local and regional fisheries.
