Bio

I am a Master's Fellow in NOAA-EPP's Living Marine Resources Cooperative Science Center studying ecological systems and fisheries biology at the Chesapeake Biological Lab. Co-advised by Dr. Rose Jagus and Dr. David Secor, my research focus is on monkfish age validation using hard part analysis of known-age cohorts. My research seeks to support age-structured assessments and allow fisheries managers to make well-informed assessments of stock status on which to build sound management practices.
