Research interests

Growing up along the sunny shores of California, my interest in fishes began at a young age, while accompanying my grandfather on fishing trips (because I was the only family member who didn't get seasick). After getting a Bachelor of Science at the University of Southern California, I tested my sea-legs working as a fishery observer in the Bering Sea and then as a naturalist in Maui. During these formative years I also became a dive instructor, boat captain, and even managed some closed-circuit rebreather training. I then began a Masters, followed by a PhD program at James Cook University, Australia, where I combined my research interests in fishes and fishing. I use Baited Remote Underwater Video Stations (BRUVS) and advanced otolith chemistry techniques to look at the distribution of deeper fishes.
