At the broadest level, I am interested in the ecology and conservation of marine ecosystems. My current and future research plans are driven by a suite of related questions addressing the environmental factors and ecological interactions that influence individual and population processes. Understanding animal movement across multiple scales is a unifying theme of my research, and I engage in applied research at the intersection of fisheries, oceanography, and marine biology that directly affects conservation and management outcomes. Much of my research focuses on migratory and apex predators in marine ecosystems, ranging from temperate to polar regions, with the overarching aim to understand the patterns and processes of how populations are distributed in space and time.
