I have a Ph.D. in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from the University of California, Santa Cruz, where I was a student in Dr. Alonzo’s lab. I studied the reproductive ecology of marine fishes with a special focus on the magnificent genus of Sebastes (rockfishes). My research aimed to understand how ocean conditions influence reproduction in these long-lived, live-bearing species. For this work, I collaborated with researchers at the NOAA Fisheries, Fisheries Ecology Division in Santa Cruz, CA. I will continue to research life history traits of marine fishes as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Washington in Seattle, WA, and how life history information can better inform population models and fisheries management.
