    BioI am a marine scientist trying to understand how environmental conditions drive ecological patterns of fish and fisheries through a physiological lens. The goal is to generate knowledge that can be incorporated into fisheries management frameworks to enhance resource sustainability. I earned my PhD at the Department of Ichthyology and Fisheries Science, Rhodes University under the supervision prof. Warren Potts in the SAFER lab, Dr Nikki James and Dr Amanda Bates in the Physiological Diversity Lab at Southampton University. I subsequently did a postdoc with the South African Institute for Aquatic Biodiversity where I helped coordinate multiple research projects across southern Africa. I am currently based at Stanford University, working in Prof. Erik Sperling's Historical Geobiology Lab and Prof. Fio Micheli's lab at Hopkins Marine Station. During this postdoc I will use physiological models to predict climate impacts and identify spatial refugia of key California fishery species including Red Abalone and Purple Urchin.
