Bio

Much of my research involves marine fish eggs and larvae. These early life history stages typically spend weeks to months developing in the ocean as plankton. Their transport, growth, and mortality during this time carry over to shape adult fish population sizes and geographic distributions. I combine field, laboratory, and modeling approaches to develop an integrated, mechanistic understanding of the key processes affecting the species and systems I study. Food web dynamics of marine plankton are also central to my research. I develop and apply data analysis techniques to search large oceanographic data sets for spatial, temporal, and size-distribution patterns among different types of plankton. I then use the resulting patterns to model environmental and climate influences on marine ecosystems.
