I use mathematical modeling to understand and quantify ecological and evolutionary responses to environmental variability and change in space and time.  In an ecological context I explore the drivers of ecological resilience to environmental change, and in an evolutionary context I explore the potential for rapid evolutionary responses on ecological time scales to affect population dynamics. To bridge basic and applied science, I focus on cases of human-driven global environmental change such as fisheries, artificial propagation, and climate change.
