About me

00100sPORTRAIT_00100_BURST20190715083035114_COVERIn 2015, I received my Ph.D. from the School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences, University of Washington. As a previous postdoc for Science for Nature and People Partnership (SNAPP) studying offshore aquaculture, the work motivated Ben Halpern and me to continue the science by co-founding the Conservation Aquaculture Research Team (CART) at the National Center for Ecological Analysis & Synthesis (NCEAS). CART uses interdisciplinary synthesis science to explore the interactions and conservation implications of marine aquaculture, climate change, and larger food systems, in collaboration with our global partners (e.g., TNC, NOAA, UW). I’m happy to announce, starting July 2019, I will be starting a tenure-track Assistant Faculty position studying Marine Fisheries and Aquaculture Ecology in the departments of Environmental Studies and Ecology, Evolution, & Marine Biology at the University California, Santa Barbara. That means a new website coming soon!
