Statement of Interest
Broadly I am interested in field based research that expands the scientific understanding and conservation of rare and endangered whale populations. My research aims to increase the impact of science to inform and affect marine conservation and management. I rely on an interdisciplinary approach, incorporating techniques and methods from spatial ecology, biology, and oceanography, such as genetics, stable isotopes, and acoustics, to answer related questions regarding patterns, process, connectivity and scale in marine mammal populations. I am also interested in the theoretical, technical and analytical challenges of managing and integrating large multivariate data sets and spatial modelling for marine mammals and ecosystems.
