PhD Candidate
Department of Geography
University of Hawaii

I am currently a PhD student at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, Department of Geography and working as a graduate research assistant for the Hawaii Cooperative Fishery Research Unit and NOAA Biogeography Branch. My general research interests involve marine landscape ecology, as well as conservation and management applications of GIS and remote sensing. My dissertation research involves spatially predictive modeling and mapping of marine fish assemblages and quantifying three dimensional marine landscape structure using bathymetric LiDAR data. I have a special interest in applying a geospatial approach to study marine biogeographic patterns in support of marine spatial planning applications.
