I am an applied ecologist at NOAA‘s Northwest Fisheries Science Center and an Affiliate Associate Professor in the School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences at the University of Washington.
I work on a variety of problems related to the conservation and management of aquatic resources, particularly along the west coast of North America. Much of my research is focused on the development and application of statistical methods for analyzing temporal and spatial data.
I advise post-docs and serve on graduate student committees in both formal and informal roles. Feel free to contact me if you would like to discuss any aspect of your research.

I am involved in a number of collaborative projects with colleagues from within and outside of NOAA. Here are a few examples.
Development and application of integrated population models for Pacific salmon.
Development and application of MARSS models for time series analysis.
Development and application of joint dynamic species density models (JDSDM) to marine and terrestrial fauna.
During winters of odd years we teach Applied Time Series Analysis in Fisheries and Environmental Sciences (FISH 507), a 10-week long course in the School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences at the University of Washington.

In March of 2014 we taught Applied Time Series for Ecology, a weeklong short course in the Department of Ecology, Environment and Plant Sciences at Stockholm University.
