I am a fisheries oceanographer who studies the early life stages of fishes in Alaskan waters. My research focuses on collecting and aging larval and juvenile fish to understand the environmental drivers of early growth, survival, and recruitment. I am especially interested in how the environmental conditions females experience prior to and during reproduction affect maternal condition and translate to investment in larvae as well as how the combination of larval quality and the oceanographic conditions larvae experience affect growth and survival through early life.
