Our research focuses on understanding the forces (both natural and human) that shape marine and aquatic communities, and how they determine the large-scale and long-term dynamics of fisheries. We want to understand how to better manage fished ecosystems to ensure that they are both able to remain resilient to environmental change continue to provide resources to the stakeholders and communities that rely on them. We also want to improve how well we can detect rapid changes in these systems, and predict what changes may occur in the future. Our lab’s work lies at the intersection of community ecology, quantitative ecology, spatial ecology, and fisheries biology.
