Information for prospective students


I usually accept students at the Masters and PhD level. Though inquiries are always welcome, before applying to work with me, it is a good idea to take a careful look at my overall research interests and recent publication to see if your interests and abilities match mine and those of my laboratory. Also, we engage our students in experiential learning in the classroom, in our laboratories, on our ships and out in the field. Our small size allows close interactions with faculty and opportunities to tailor individual courses of study.  

Prospective students should have a quantitative background, and be interested in problems relating to habitat suitability modeling, species distribution modeling, ecosystem-based fisheries management and aquatic ecology. If you have any questions, please contact me by email or phone as listed on my homepage.

When applying, please send at least the following items:

  1. A letter of motivation
  2. A detailed CV
  3. Names and contact information for 3 professional references
