I joined the Block lab in 2019 and am broadly interested in using modern tagging technologies to better understand the movement and behavioural ecology of sharks and other large pelagic predators.

I completed my PhD at the University of Western Australia where my research focused on investigating the patterns and drivers of vertical movements of sharks and other large epipelagic predatory fishes. At Hopkins Marine Station, I aim to continue to investigate the vertical movement patterns of these animals, as well as evaluate how best to incorporate these findings into conservation and management strategies. 

I also have an interest in the need for better science communication and changing the way the public perceive both sharks, and the scientific community in general.
