BA Biology, Reed College 2010 MS UMaine 2016
With an upbringing in Maine, a background in herpetology in Oregon and two years of field and commercial fisheries work in Alaska, I have returned to the state I love the most to begin my career integrating science with policy to preserve the fishing stocks of the world. I am enrolled in the dual degree program (marine biology and fisheries policy), studying under Drs. Rick Wahle and Carla Guenther. I am focusing primarily on the Maine inshore lobster fishery. In the first phase of my graduate work I will be assessing the value of the American Lobster Settlement Index, a multidecade international effort to quantify juvenile settlement, as a predictive tool for commercial lobster landings. Phase two will consist of a quantitative and qualitative assessment of the municipal dependence of a spectrum of fishing towns on the Maine coast on the lobster fishery and the potential ramifications and impacts of a predictive capability thereon.
