I am a conservation ecologist, science coordinator for the Central Coast Indigenous Resource Alliance, and adjunct assistant professor in Environmental Studies at the University of Victoria. My extensive research experience spans from conflicts between industrial development and terrestrial wildlife to the effects of overfishing on marine predators.
An overarching theme of my research is how predators affect multi-species interactions, thereby influencing the structure of biological communities. Given that fisheries have a disproportionate effect on large-bodied predators, this work has strong implications for marine conservation.
I also have a growing interest in communicating climate change science so that an informed public might steer governments into energy policies that value intergenerational justice.
