Our group conducts research in fish ecology and animal movements. We primarily try to understand the motivations and consequences of fish movements through space and time. We are also interested in predator-prey interactions, bioenergetics, and landscape ecology. To study these topics, we use a variety of techniques including telemetry (putting an electronic tag on or in an animal to follow its movements), diet analyses, bioenergetics models, and geographic information systems (GIS).
We conduct research on various taxa, mostly fishes, across the globe. This includes Pacific salmon in British Columbia, fishes in the high Arctic, Atlantic salmon among other fishes in New England, Gulf of Maine crustaceans, and even dolphins in the Mediterranean.
