Hopkins Marine Station, Boat Works Lecture Hall

free and open to public

I am a quantitative marine ecologist and conservation biologist at the NOAA Northwest Fisheries Science Center in Seattle, Washington, USA. Through field experiments, quantitative analysis, and the development of mathematical models, my research focuses on how people's activities influence marine ecosystems, and how changes in marine ecosystems affect people. A fish guy at heart, my current research areas of interest include ecosystem-based reference points, vulnerability of fish and fishermen to climate change, effects of coastal activities on seagrass community dynamics, and theory and practice in strategic ecosystem restoration and recovery.Most of my work now centers on the California Current Large Marine Ecosystem, including Puget Sound, but I have also worked in several places throughout the Caribbean studying coral reefs.
