Our lab works at the interface of population ecology and conservation biology. We focus on studying movement ecology, dispersal and migration, to better understand the dynamics and structure of populations and communities in tropical and temperate aquatic ecosystems, with a goal of informing conservation and management decision making.  Our approach to research is multi-disciplinary emphasizing empirical analysis and involves advanced population genetic analyses and biogeochemistry, including otolith microchemistry, as well as intensive field experiments and observational studies.
