I am interested in how species distributions and dynamics are influenced by their biotic and abiotic context. Much of my current work is focused on the application of hierarchical Bayesian modeling to understand how the landscape, and human modification of it, influences marine and aquatic organisms at multiple spatial scales.
To understand the causes and consequences of multiple scales of ecological pattern, I integrate field experiments and measurements, remote sensing and geospatial analyses, and statistical modelling. I aim to bring these tools to bear on problems of practical management importance.
