Research Interests

Marine Ecology, Marine Conservation Biology

Our lab brings science and action together to solve conservation problems. We use science to identify and prioritize conservation problems and work with agencies and NGOs to develop and test cost effective solutions that can be taken to scale. Much of our work has focused on seabirds and island ecosystems, but we will apply our approach to any ecosystem where it can make a profound difference.
