Fisheries Oceanography
Ecology of Larval Fish and Zooplankton
Physical-biological coupling in marine ecosystems
Expert Profile
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.

Community projects

My students and I conduct oceanographic research in waters of coastal B.C., particularly the Strait of Georgia.
