I am currently a Research Fishery Biologist at NOAA Fisheries. I grew up in Pennsylvania, have lived in Texas and Oregon, and now reside in Seattle, WA. I became interested in biology and ecology in high school and as an undergraduate, and got my first taste of marine science and oceanography during the Sea Education Association (SEA) Semester undergraduate program on the SSV Corwith Cramer.

My research interests have included understanding how physical oceanographic features influence the distribution of zooplankton, fish, and other higher predators, applying acoustic methods to the study of patterns in zooplankton and fish distribution and abundance, and learning how marine ecosystems respond to climate change. I think my work is interesting and fun (at least most of the time) and is important to managing marine fisheries and understanding our changing ocean environment.
