I recently completed my master's degree at the School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences at University of Washington, and am excited to begin my PhD research in the same department beginning Summer 2017.
I work in marine resource management by blending ecological principles with mathematical modeling. I am interested in being a part of innovative conservation strategies for fishery management.
For my PhD project, I intend to examine the potential of a multi-species management strategy evaluation for California forage fish fisheries.
My masters research developed an age-size-structured fishery assessment method, and applied it to Alaskan populations, focusing on Eastern Bering Sea Tanner crab (Chionoecetes bairdi), Pribilof Island Blue King Crab (Paralithodes platypus), and Eastern Bering Sea Pacific cod (Gadus macrocephalus).
My previous work includes responses of California market squid (Doryteuthis opalescens) to changes in the California Current Ecosystem.
