I am a faculty member in the Department of Ecology, Evolution and Environmental Biology at Columbia University. Here, I teach, conduct research on the evolution and conservation of marine biodiversity, and run our MA in Conservation Biology program.
The summer of planting data papers is starting to bear fruit. I have a new paper in PLOS One with Ruth Hufbauer and Katie Amatangelo, looking at direct vs. indirect anthropogenic forces in structuring reef fish communities in Papua New Guinea
The historical ecology collaborative papers are starting to come out. One in Ocean & Coastal Management (which I blogged about here) and one in Bioscience. There are still a few more which are in press/under review so more to come!
I had the honor of meeting the president of Fiji Epeli Nailatikau along with the U.S. Ambassador Judith Cefkin at the opening of the Vatu-i-Ra art exhibit at the Fiji Museum (photo (c) The Fiji Times)
