Research Description:
I am a limnologist and paleolimnologist with Fisheries and Oceans Canada¿s Science Branch, located at the Cultus Lake Salmon Research Laboratory. My research principally focuses on the trophic ecology of sockeye salmon (Oncorhynchus nerka) nursery lake ecosystems, and the identification of both freshwater and marine forcing mechanisms responsible for stock production and nursery ecosystem dynamics. My current research interests include: (1) Regulatory mechanisms of productive capacity in sockeye salmon nursery ecosystems; (2) Impacts and interactions of climate change on sockeye salmon and nursery habitat; (3) Exogenous forcing mechanisms responsible for long-term Pacific salmon production dynamics and ecosystem interactions; (4) Mechanisms of heterogeneity in northern climate warming trends. My research program integrates monitoring, targeted ecosystem experiments and studies, long-term ecological research and paleoecology to achieve research goals.
