Ph.D. Fisheries

My research is focused on understanding interactions between sea otters and the Dungeness crab fishery in southeast Alaska. Sea otters were reintroduced to the area in the 1960s after decades of absence and as that population has grown, concerns have emerged around potential conflicts with fisheries. Through my research I hope to gain a deeper understanding of the dynamics that control both sea otter and Dungeness crab populations in southeast Alaska and help inform the management of both species.
