Research Interests:
Fisheries Oceanography and Plankton Ecology

My research focuses on the various ways in which interactions between biology and physics structure pelagic marine ecosystems. I am particularly interested in the effect of physical variability on the ecology of (and interactions between) larval fish and zooplankton, and the ways in which variability in the physical environment regulates recruitment in marine fish populations. Some current research projects in my lab include: the population ecology of larval fish (in both coastal Newfoundland and the NE Pacific), the ecophysiology of overwintering copepods, the invasion biology of non-indigenous bivalves, and the role of Haida eddies in transporting larval fish to offshore seamounts in the NE Pacific.
