Interests and Expertise:

Coastal marine ecosystems; movement ecology; seabird-fisheries interactions; seabird population ecology and restoration; small boat operation, safety, and instruction


My current research is focused on cormorants, specifically on collecting high resolution tracking and biologging data. These data sets shed light on cormorant ecology and calibrate models of nearshore oceanographic processes.
