Bio

I am an interdisciplinary scholar engaged with ocean history, historical ecology, and marine conservation. My research integrates natural science, social science, and humanities to quantify and describe ecological change and human drivers over centuries and across large areas. This applied historical research has had direct present-day conservation benefits, providing information needed to halt declines and promote recovery of marine fisheries and ocean animals.
