My Ph.D. is focused on modelling populations that exhibit rapid responses to environmental change.

I focus on understanding the consequences of trait change due to evolutionary and plastic responses in changing enviornments. For some years, I have been developing theory on population dynamics resulting from these processes. Most of ...

The biologists have done their jobs. We know the life cycles and habitat requirements of endangered western fishes. . . [A] successful management program could be devised and implemented for the Grand Canyon region. Current politics stand in the way, just as surely as politics of the 1960s aided and abetted our ...

Several projects apply concepts and methods from population biology to applied issues in river management and conservation:

My master's research focused on the evolutionary ecology of sea lice, farmed and wild salmon. I'm particularly interested in the ways in which the combination of wild salmon migrations and salmon farm management can influence chemical resistance evolution on farms.

Sea lice tend to proliferate on sea-cage farmed ...
