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 am also a Senior Fellow at the World Conservation Monitoring Centre, a part of the United Nations Environment Programme.

Prospective Students and Researchers
I am currently not accepting new graduate students, but am always open to motivated post-docs and scientists who thrive in both collaborative and independent research settings, and am particularly supportive of those interested in interdisciplinary research.  Please first visit my Join page if you would like to work with my research group to explore options.
