My principal scientific interest and experience focus on understanding fisheries sustainability in an ecosystem context as part of renewable natural resource conservation and management programs. I have been involved in a variety of interdisciplinary projects that aim to quantitatively assess how natural and human-induced stressors may interactively modulate harvested fish population dynamics and influence policy decision-making. Examples include interactions between species invasion & eutrophication, chemical pollution & hydrological alteration, and climate variability & harvesting on the sustainability of pelagic and demersal species exploited by commercial, recreational, and subsistence fisheries.
My recent work entails statistical and mathematical modeling to assess spatial and temporal dynamics of exploited marine fish stocks and evaluate management strategies by integrating large-scale monitoring survey data with population, food web, and ecosystem dynamics models (spatially explicit individual-based models, State-space Assessment Model, Ecopath with Ecosim, etc.).
