Principal Investigator

I have been a research scientist at the University of Washington School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences in the Wetland Ecosystem Team since 2000, focusing on nearshore restoration and effects of shoreline armoring in Puget Sound. The ecological interactions of juvenile fishes and invertebrates with estuarine systems is the underlying framework for most of my research. In addition to field-based research, I have worked on two recent projects with Washington Sea Grant: 1) establishing standardized protocols as part of the Shoreline Monitoring Database, and 2) coordinating the PSEMP Nearshore work group to increase communication on nearshore issues in Puget Sound.
