Early life history ecology of marine fish species; ichthyoplankton dynamics as related to population recruitment processes; evaluation of vulnerability and resilience of marine fish species to environmental change in Large Marine Ecosystems (LMEs) based on life history strategies and links between species metrics and climate-ocean variables.

Current Research Projects
- Investigation of relationships between larval fish abundance and physical forcing in the Gulf of Alaska, based on time-series of ichthyoplankton collections and climate and ocean variables.
- A review of the early life history of Pacific sand lance (Ammodytes hexapterus) in the Gulf of Alaska, with emphasis on its status as an important forage species.
- Evaluation of life history groups of fish species as proxies for population response to environmental change in the Gulf of Alaska, and other Large Marine Ecosystems (LMEs) of the U.S.
