My research is grounded in marine ecology and integrates and interdisciplinary approach. Research disciplines include aquaculture, fisheries and coastal management. Previous projects have been based in freshwater, estuarine and marine habitats including temperate lakes, Atlantic rocky shorelines, temperate barrier-beach lagoons, tropical coral reefs and Pacific glacial fjords. I enjoy working on projects that look at biotic and abiotic dynamics and interactions as they apply to conservation and/or social development issues. My current research focuses on sustainable ecological aquaculture and food web dynamics in... Read More
