Research Description

My PhD research at NC State uses underwater acoustics as a tool to monitor oyster restoration success, fish habitat use of restored habitats, and underwater habitat health. This includes passive acoustic monitoring of estuarine fish and habitat mapping using side scan sonar. The goal of this work is to inform oyster reef restoration design and conservation priorities for key estuarine fish species. My overall research interests span coastal and marine ecology; I am most interested in understanding how marine organisms interact with changing habitats and each other, especially in light of global change.
