I am a marine ecologist and Professor in Marine Conservation Biology at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. My research focuses on the causes and consequences of changes in marine biodiversity and conservation on a global scale, particularly regarding fishing, climate change, and ocean ecosystems. I also work on solutions for rebuilding marine life and advancing policies to prevent further loss of marine biodiversity worldwide. With over 25 years of science communication experience, I am the Founder and Scientific Director of Ocean School, an online learning resource for teachers and students in collaboration with the National Film Board of Canada. I am also the Ambassador for Ocean Literacy at the Ocean Frontier Institute and teach a class on science communication and leadership.
