My research currently focuses on assessing the effects of different forms of spatial and non-spatial fisheries management on marine populations.  Using the lenses of meta-population modeling, experimental marine ecology, species distribution modeling, analysis of fisheries catch-effort data and oceanography, I am looking at how marine spatial management relates to sustainability, conservation and community structure of marine populations with distinct dispersal and reproductive potentials.  Recent work has included studies on the implications of offshore marine protected areas for mobile demersal and pelagic species.  I am also studying the effects of oceanographic processes on temporal and spatial patterns of larval settlement.

Random other musings:

Software Projects:  I am working on a couple of group software development projects.

Notes and Documentation:  Here I keep notes about things that I have figured out that might be useful to others, such as solutions to random math, science and computer problems.  The proverbial kitchen drawer.

Complaints department:  Random things that bugged me enough to get me to write a web page about them.
