Research Overviews

My research focuses on ecological questions that are relevant to fishery management and conservation, from the biology and ecology of fishes to human dimensions in fisheries. I am primarily interested in the roles of predation and fishing in marine ecosystems and the ecological responses of marine communities to environmental change across multiple scales. I use a combination of field sampling, quantitative analysis, and ethnographic methods in my research.

For more information about the research my students and I are doing, please visit my Coastal Fisheries Ecology Lab website.


Current research projects

  • The Coastal Fisheries Ecology Lab at the University of Alaska Fairbanks conducts research that contributes fundamental knowledge of coastal ecosystems, of which humans are a part, and addresses information needs for ecosystem-based fishery management and conservation. We draw approaches and perspectives from multiple disciplines, including fisheries science, ecology, and anthropology. We use a combination of field sampling, quantitative methods, and ethnographic approaches in our work. Major research themes include:
  • Trophic interactions and movement ecology of marine and anadromous fishes
  • Ecological responses of marine communities to multi-scale environmental drivers
  • Integrating local and traditional ecological knowledge with fisheries science
  • Fishery resource users’ perceptions of and responses to environmental and regulatory change
  • Stakeholder engagement in recreational fishery management and conservation
