Research interests

   In my research I use methods from ecological modeling, physical oceanography, and population genetics to investigate population processes at landscape scales.  My research at NCEAS involves assessing sensitivity of salmon species to river modifications and climate change throughout their North American ranges, and identifying optimal conservation strategies to promote population resilience. To better predict future population dynamics, I hope to use key insights from case studies detecting adaptive and plastic responses of salmon to 20th century habitat and climate change.
