I am a PhD candidate in the School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences at Stony Brook University. My interests are mostly about how marine animals move through and inhabit their environment--which is often unpredictable, patchy, and turbulent. To get at these questions, I use a mixture of remote sensing (mostly radar and sonar), modeling, and ecological theory.

Like the oceanographer Henry Stommel (Science, 1963), I "look forward to a time when theory and observation will at last advance together in a more intimately related way."
