Supervisor(s) Name(s)
Dr. William Cheung & Dr. Rashid Sumaila

Current research: Ocean acidification impacts threaten the marine ecosystem goods and services we depend upon. My research focuses on predicting the impacts of ocean acidification and climate change on the future of Canadian and global fisheries. By using methods specifically suited to address different spatial scales, my research will provide informative data to mitigate and adapt to these impacts.
