My research interests include aquaculture of bivalve molluscs, including offshore production of mussels and sea scallops. I also work in estuarine systems, focusing on oyster culture and restoration, and the relationship between water quality and bivalve molluscs. I have a background in fisheries science and was a commercial fisherman, commercial oyster farmer, and seafood business owner prior to my tenure at UNH.
