I’m excited to announce that I’ve started a new post-doc research position at Florida International University with Dr. Alastair Harborne in the Tropical Fish Ecology Lab! I’m working on a project in collaboration with The Nature Conservancy to map and model fishing impact in the Florida Keys. The research brings together data from NOAA’s coral reef fish visual surveys, commercial and recreational fisheries, as well as a variety of publicly-available fisheries-related data from South Florida. My first challenge is coming up with a fishery-independent metric that works as a proxy for fishing impact over time. Check back for updates and results.
