I am a Quantitative Ecologist in the Marine Invasions Research Laboratory and Senior Analyst for the National Ballast Information Clearinghouse (NBIC). I have a broad interest in invasive species and understanding why some introductions succeed, while most fail. More specifically, I am interested in the vectors by which non-native species are introduced into a new range and the factors that affect establishment with an eye towards vector management.
