Research interests include investigations of: i) migrations and habitats of large pelagic animals including turtles, tunas, whale sharks, and whales with satellite telemetry and remotely-sensed oceanographic data, ii) the impacts of climate variation and climate change on marine fisheries and ecosystems, and iii) advancing our understanding of ecosystem dynamics with satellite remote sensing data, fisheries observer and logbook data, and ecosystem and climate models.
