My research interests range from behavioral ecology to small-scale fisheries and conservation. My background has been focused on cognitive evolution and behavioral research, but my recent projects are centered around the interactions between human communities and their ecosystems. Through interdisciplinary methods, I study how small-scale and artisanal fisheries affect coastal elasmobranch populations in various regions in the world. By understanding the social and economic importance of shark and ray fisheries, I hope to improve conservation and management policies in order to preserve their populations as well as the human populations that depend on them.
