Humpback whales, climate change and prey availability

In the face of climate change and shifting prey availability, this projects aims to quantify the bioenergetic demands of humpback whale migration between Alaska and Hawaii.

Population biology of Hawaiian spinner dolphins

This project aims to assess the abundance and distribution of Hawaiian spinner dolphins in the main Hawaiian Islands and collect detailed population and life-history data on the dolphins of Oʻahu's Waiʻanae coast.

Conservation biology of gray whales on their breeding grounds

This project aims to understand the behavior and bioenergetics of gray whales on their breeding ground in San Ignacio Lagoon, Mexico. 


In-situ calibration of UAV photogrammetry 

This project aims to develop a method to rapidly assess delphinid population age structure. This will ultimately provide an assessment of population growth and survival rates, and early insight into whether there may be cause for concern for specific populations.
