I am interested in how oceanographic processes and conditions affect the distribution, abundance and behavior of marine predators and their prey and how these processes affect trophic structure of coastal ecosystems. I use a multi-scale, interdisciplinary approach to investigate these processes, by employing shipboard expeditions, laboratory experiments, modeling, and retrospective examinations of long-term data sets. Current examples are described here.
