Bio


My primary research uses the tools of molecular biology and the theory of population genetics to understand patterns of genetic diversity found in aquatic species, especially highly migratory marine species that are commercially harvested and/or vulnerable to extinction and protected by law. Our work is applicable to monitoring population productivity, improving stock assessments, and sustainably managing fishery populations for the future.
