My research explores mechanisms that regulate fish population and community structure and dynamics, as well as food web interactions, in both freshwater and marine ecosystems. Typically, I have sought to apply my research to resource management problems such that agencies can make informed decisions about the environment. Overall, my research encompasses three broad but interconnected areas: 1) fish recruitment and early life-history; 2) stock discrimination and population connectivity; and 3) global change ecology.
