Research

My current research is focused on how temporal environmental variability effects the dynamics of populations and communities.  I am using age- and stage-structured models to explore how well different management practices (harvest control rules, marine protected areas, culling, translocation) perform in terms of population persistence, long-term fishery yield, and variability in yield under different conditions of intraannual, interannual, and interdecadal climate variability.  I aim to use this framework to make progress toward the concrete application of resilience theory to management and conservation.
