I am a postdoctoral researcher at the South African Institute for Aquatic Biodiversity (SAIAB) in Makhanda/Grahamstown, South Africa. I study commercially important marine fishes 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. I received a MS in Fisheries from the University of Alaska Fairbanks and a PhD from Yale University in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology.
Highlights from my time in the field are posted on my blog (see: Candid Carangid). I also frequently post updates on Twitter.
