My thesis work focuses on predicting upriver migratory timing of Yukon River Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) using a combination of meteorology, genetics, radiotelemetry, and the inordinate amounts of R code. My work on this topic has developed my interest in how fisheries managers use in-season data to update their expectations about various parameters of the run (e.g. size, timing).
I'm broadly interested in computational aspects in the (biological) sciences. I really like statistics and data visualization.
