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
