I am interested in aquaculture for food, aquaculture for conservation, and the ever-evolving interplay between wild-caught fisheries and aquaculture as they contribute to global food systems. I see aquaculture as a solution for protecting our wild fish stocks as well as a sustainable way to feed growing human populations. 

I primarily teach in the Professional Science Master's Program in Ocean Food Systems Program here at the University of New England. My position affords me the opportunity to interact with ocean food system students and leaders across the 'New North" working on past, present and emerging issues as climate change alters the North Atlantic Ocean landscape and the demographics who utilize its resources.
