I am generally interested in how the California Current Ecosystem is responding to climate change. My research currently focuses on assessing the vulnerability of west coast fisheries to climate change. I plan on studying how species’ habitat will shift with climate change and whether certain management tools can increase species’ resilience to a changing climate.

I am co-advised by Dr. Elliott Hazen who studies the effects of climate change on top predator habitat and biodiversity.
