I am a quantitative population ecologist who works on a variety of systems. Currently, my main focus is the demography of social carnivores. As a member of the ACS lab, I’m collaborating with researchers in the Department of Fisheries and Oceans to explore social impacts on population dynamics in northern resident killer whales. I also collaborate with other ACS lab members on the salmon carnivore project.
I have a passion for the coast, and a large component of my work focuses on salmon and the systems they influence. Related work with Raincoast explores the relationship between Chinook salmon and southern resident killer whales. Each spring, I spend time at Salmon Coast Field Station, for which I also serve as a director.
