  • Research/Focus Areas
    • Fisheries Management
    • Applied Fish Ecology
    • Age and Growth of Fishes
    • Community Ecology
  • Biography

    My program focuses on answering questions related to the management and conservation of aquatic systems. The impetus for my research emerges from issues and concerns related to the management of sport fisheries and conservation of native fishes. Consequently, I frame my research questions and approaches in a manner that has relevance to the general scientific community and natural resource managers.
