My interests lie in fisheries restoration, fish ecology, and genetics. Specifically I'm interested in how bringing wild animals into captive environments changes them via domestication selection and what the consequences of captive culture are after release. Using Pacific salmon I'm able to study the process of domestication and begin to identify what is driving differences between wild and captively reared animals.
