My Research
Understanding the role of sharks in oceans.
About my research
My research interests are broad and varied, encompassing everything from ecological impacts & socio-economic value of shark fishing, human-wildlife conflict mitigation, telemetry and spatially explicit management models, and the collection of baseline ecological data on mobile marine species and habitats using multi-faceted research approaches.

Cultivating ocean stewardship through communication

I believe that one of my most important roles - as a scientist of the 21st Century - is to engage with communities through media & experiential education. By sharing my knowledge & experience, my goal is to help create a new generation of ocean stewards - ultimately working toward positive conservation change for people, sharks & the oceans.
