Quantitative approaches to understanding marine wildlife and ecosystems


Specializing in ecological modeling solutions for wildlife conservation, bringing together data and theory to address emerging challenges in marine ecosystems. Applications include Population Viability Analyses (PVA), Bayesian State Space models of behavior and population dynamics, and wildlife survey analyses.

Population dynamics

Mathematical models of demographic processes provide insights and solutions for the conservation of wildlife (for example, viability of seabird populations or recovery projections for sea otters)

Threat impacts

Analyses of the population-level impacts of threats are used for prioritizing management actions and identifying emerging conservation challenges (such as bird collisions with powerlines)

Behavior and foraging ecology

Mechanistic models of behavior, including foraging ecology and responses to stimuli, help managers interpret and understand population status, food web interactions and consequences of wildlife disturbance

Species interactions

Describing and understanding the dynamics of ecosystem interaction webs, including the links between wildlife and people, supports informed decisions that ensure resiliency of food webs and resources that are vital for human communities
