Life history relationships and extinction risk in fishes, from salmon to sharks and rays

I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. My research focuses on understanding how life histories, particularly their relationships and variation within and among populations, determine their potenitial to recover after disturbances. My work is also applied: I develop simple methods for predicting the vulnerability of data-poor species based on insights from life history relationships. I am currently exploring and modelling the life histories of wild Atlantic salmon populations in Eastern Canada, working with Jeff Hutchings.

I recently finished my PhD working with Nick Dulvy at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, British Columbia, where my research focused on understanding the relationships among life histories in sharks, rays, and chimaeras. For my Honours research at the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia, I explored dietary partitioning among co-occurring coastal stingrays working with Mike Bennett.
