Research Statement

My research uses oceanographic and social science data to forecast the total consequences of human-driven changes in the marine inorganic carbon cycle. Anthropogenic changes like ocean acidification will affect not only the marine environment but also the benefits, like economic revenue and protein supply, that marine ecosystems provide to human communities. Recently, I have assessed how ocean acidification could alter protein supply and economic revenue using ocean models and fisheries datasets. This research increasingly incorporates ecology, sociology, economics, resource management, risk assessment, and decision making under uncertainty.
