Our group works in the Department of Biology at UH Mānoa to understand how animal populations interact with their environment and the mechanisms that allow complex ecological systems to persist through time. Our research goals are to develop reliable tools for the management and conservation of those systems.
We have a strong interest in freshwater ecology but we work on a range of different ecological systems from food webs in the north Pacific to experimental populations of water fleas. Our group also works on statistical problems at a range of different levels of biological organization through mentoring and consultations with our colleagues in the Biological Sciences.
How can we effectively measure predation in nature?
I regularly teach Biostatistics (BIOL 297) and Biometry (ZOOL 631).
