I test and identify ecosystem-based solutions that work for nature and people. My research is inherently interdisciplinary and I conduct field and lab experiments as well as socioeconomic interviews, perform synthetic statistical analyses, and design models to understand the interactions and outcomes that arise from fisheries management interventions. This work is both local and international, often using oysters in estuaries and coral reef fishes as study organisms, as well as the people that depend on them. I envision contributing to the interdisciplinary nature of the Coastal Institute by brokering relationships between natural and human scientists with the goal of coastal sustainability.
