My interests range from basic research in aquatic science using statistical analysis of large databases to broader applications of empirical evidence in environmental issues and policy. I joined NCEAS as Deputy Director in May, 2006 after several years on faculty at University of Idaho. Diverse research experiences – from SCUBA diving on coral reefs to doing statistics with sociologists – have heightened my appreciation for and enjoyment of the wide variety of research fields represented at NCEAS.

I increasingly choose publishers that either directly provide open access or allow authors to post manuscripts. I've included a full list of publications and links to those for which I retain rights to post.
