I come from a background of ecological field research in aquatic and terrestrial systems. My PhD work involved quantifying mortality rates and patterns of migrating juvenile salmonids in southern British Columbia. This work comprised comparative and experimental approaches, single-stock and multi-stock perspectives, and novel methodological developments.

I am currently doing a Banting Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Washington's School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences, working with Ray Hilborn.
