My main research interests are the movement and trophic ecology of marine predators. Previous and ongoing research that I've been involved with includes acoustic tagging of coastal sharks, identification of shark habitat within estuaries and near shore, and feeding ecology of spiny dogfish sharks. At SERC I will be using telemetry methods to track multiple coastal shark species and some of their prey to identify shark habitat and determine the importance of predator/prey interactions on habitat selection.
