Holly in the Scandola Marine Reserve
I am an ecologist based in New York City. My research projects involve combining theory and data to understand fish life-history traits: how they evolve, and their consequences for population dynamics.  My current research is focused on fish with complex life histories, like salmon (anadromous, semelparous), groupers (aggregation spawning, sex change), and wrasses (alternative male tactics).
