I am a Professor of Marine Biology and Conservation Science at the Bren School of Environmental Science & Management at UC Santa Barbara and Director of the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis. I hold a position as Chair in Marine Conservation at Imperial College London as part of the Grand Challenges in Ecosystems and the Environment program, am the Director of the Center for Marine Assessment and Planning (CMAP), and a Senior Fellow at the World Conservation Monitoring Centre, a part of the United Nations Environment Programme.

Prospective Students and Researchers
I am always looking for highly motivated students, post-docs and scientists who thrive in collaborative as well as independent research settings, and am particularly supportive of those interested in interdisciplinary research.  Note: I will not be taking any new graduate students for fall of 2018. Please first visit my Join page if you would like to work with my research group to explore options.
