- salmon biology and management
- quantitative techniques
- population dynamics
- modeling and Bayesian methods
My primary research interest is the development and application of quantitative methodologies to salmon biology and management.
Current Research Projects
- Development of an Inseason Model to Predict Bristol Bay Sockeye Salmon (Oncorhynchus nerka) Migration Timing
- The Effects of Salmon Abundance and Run Timing on the Performance of Management by Emergency Order
- Retrospective analysis of Chinook salmon growth and survival
- Conservation and dynamics of small populations
- Model selection methodologies for ecological, epidemiological and fisheries data series
- Application of decision analysis and Bayesian statistics to resource management
- Pacific salmon management, esp. forecasting methodologies, implications of climate fluctuations, early marine growth and survival and the economic viability of rural fishing communities
