This site serves as a compendium for my research on the demography of coral reef and deep-water tropical fishes. I am currently a supervisory research scientist at the Joint Institute for Marine and Atmospheric Research (position located within the Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center) in Honolulu. I have worked extensively on the biology and ecology of marine fish species and associated fisheries, primarily in the tropical Indo-Pacific. I completed my PhD (2015) in the College of Marine and Environmental Sciences and the Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies at James Cook University in Townsville, Australia. I also spent seven years working in Micronesia, based at the University of Guam Marine Laboratory, where I completed a Master of Science degree in Biology (2008).
