and Chairperson, Department of Fisheries and Wildlife;
Co-Director, Quantitative Fisheries Center
My research program focuses on fish population dynamics and ecology,
resource management, and simulation modeling. I am especially
interested in how uncertainty and risk affect resource management
decision-making. I work closely with fishery management agencies to
apply my research findings to current and emerging management issues.
Together with Co-Director Jim Bence I established the Quantitative
Fisheries Center in 2005 to facilitate this relationship and foster
better management of fisheries, especially in the Great Lakes region.
