  • Bioeconomics
  • Fisheries Management and Marine Policy
Research Overview
My research explores the intersection between the natural sciences, economics, and public policy and is driven by an interest in the sustainable management of marine resources of the North Pacific. I direct graduate projects in bioeconomics, statistical inference, and policy analysis and teach courses in resource and environmental economics, econometrics and time series analysis, operations research and decision theory, fisheries law, and policy analysis.
Current Research Projects
  • Towards a bioeconomic harvest control rule for groundfish fisheries (PCCRC)
  • Alternative visions for fisheries governance—the rights of individuals versus the interests of communities. (PCCRC)
  • Management of coupled nonstationary dynamic bioeconomic systems. (PCCRC)
  • Characterization of the salmon bycatch in the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands (BSAI) pollock fisheries and its effects. (NPRB)
