University of Washington
I am a Research Scientist Engineer with the School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences, University of Washington (UW). After earning my BSc (University of Windsor, Ontario, Canada), MSc and Ph.D. (both from Cornell University, NY), I came to UW in 2005 for a postdoctoral project in the Bering Sea and have been hooked on saltwater ever since!
My primary research interest is in understanding how mobile organisms are distributed, and respond to changes, in their habitats. Using active acoustics (echosounders) and direct sampling (nets), I evaluate ecological, management, and gear-performance questions. Recent and current projects took place in the Bering Sea, Beaufort Sea, and Puget Sound.
