Current Research Activities
My research deals with the intersection of technical and social dimensions of marine science and marine management. I am especially interested in developing techniques that better address societal values, risk and uncertainty, and frailties in expert opinion. Recent applications include integrated monitoring, resource allocation and strategic response to Crown-of-Thorns Starfish.
