Research

I have worked in several capacities to better understand the link between marine mammal and human health with research directed towards understanding and interpreting interdisciplinary aspects of ocean health. While my research objectives continue to focus on understanding baseline health, pathogen transmission and host susceptibility, interpreting and communicating these results and their significance for public outreach, management and policy platforms is of great importance. Most recently, this focus in on integrating community science to understand marine mammal-fishery and ecosystem interactions.
