Major research questions:
I: Why do abundances in some marine populations fluctuate so dramatically in time and space?
II: What role do prey, resources, predation (including fisheries) and climate play in those changes?
III: How can such information inform responsible management of populations?
To conduct this research I utilize:
Field and laboratory based research
Observational and experimental methods
Statistical models to describe patterns in population dynamics with application to management
Mathematical models to describe and understand processes
