Research/Career Interests: 

I am interested in the process by which scientists develop, execute, and use targeted research to inform the conservation and effective management of at-risk marine species and ecosystems. For my master’s work, I will investigate both the ecological and management implications of a potential sea otter reintroduction to the Oregon coast. I plan to do this by (i) identifying suitable habitat, (ii) determining potential impacts on ecosystems and species along the coast, and (iii) elucidating what this all means for environmental managers and how such actions could further the conservation of sea otters.
