Advisor: Robert Ahrens and Ed Camp
I am a PhD student in Dr. Ahrens and Dr. Camp’s labs at UF focusing on sustainable fisheries management using stock assessments and management strategy evaluations. I obtained my B.S. in Wildlife Ecology and Conservation from the University of Florida and my M.S. in Fisheries and Wildlife from Michigan State University. My current research aims to determine whether there are suitable alternatives to the multinomial likelihood for modeling age and size composition data within fisheries stock assessments.
