My research is focused on understanding the population-level consequences of anthropogenic disturbance and environmental change in marine mammals, with a focus on humpback whales. With this information, I’m interested in developing science-based tools that can be used by project proponents and resource managers to support the development of realistic risk assessments as well as effective wildlife management and conservation strategies.
