I am a PhD candidate at Yale University in the Ecology and Evolutionary Biology department. I study commercially important marine fish because I like tackling new biological questions while also impacting sustainability, management and conservation. This site includes information about my research interests, scientific background, publications and adventures in the field.
My research is largely based at the South African Institute for Aquatic Biodiversity (SAIAB) in Grahamstown. With funding from the National Science Foundation and the U.S. Agency for International Development, I completed a 12-month fellowship at SAIAB during 2015-2016. Highlights from my time in the field are posted on my blog (see: Candid Carangid). I also frequently post updates on Twitter.
