I am a seabird ecologist based in Vancouver, Canada. I have worked on seabird research in Canada, United States, United Kingdom and Japan. Broadly, I am interested seabird foraging ecology, seabird restoration and in the at-sea distribution of pelagic birds.

I use tracking technology (e.g. GPS, archival light loggers, etc) to reveal individual movements of seabirds (currently storm-petrels) to improve marine protected area (MPA) design.

My goal is to better understand the life requisites of seabirds at sea to inform stronger conservation policies that improve outcomes for seabirds and commercially important pelagic fisheries.
