Current Research Projects
- Sustainability of coastal communities and sea otters: harvest and future management of sea otters (Alaska Sea Grant) My role in this interdisciplinary project is to analyze the USFWS database of subsistence harvested sea otters is Southeast Alaska. We are interested in patterns of harvest and what those patterns may tell us about sea otters in Southeast Alaska and their relationship with the human population.
