Project/Role
Macroecological changes in the open oceans
The goal of my project is to quantify and better understand the patterns and processes which structure open ocean ecosystems. I will use statistical methods to estimate changes in abundance of oceanic species ranging from phytoplankton to apex predatory fishes, as well as to explore the drivers and consequences of any observed changes.
