Job Title: Research Scientist
Employer: Fisheries and Oceans Canada
Place of Birth: Montreal, Quebec, Canada
Further Education: McGill University (B.Sc.), University of British Columbia (M.Sc., Ph.D.)
Geographic focus of research: British Columbia
Brief synopsis of current research:
Investigation of marine ecosystem dynamics, with particularly emphasis on the impacts of exotic (i.e. introduced) species, the implications of marine protected areas for conservation and fisheries, and the identification of sensitive habitats and the roles of structural species in them. My background is in invertebrate stock assessment, and relevant concepts are being adapted towards ecosystem, rather than single-species, resource management. I have also started investigating how to deal with cumulative effects in both the aquatic and nearshore marine ecosystems.
