easton_sharkI recently finished my PhD in Population Biology with Alan Hastings at the University of California Davis. Starting in November 2018, I will be a Postdoctoral Scholar at the University of Vermont with the QuEST program. I am generally interested in questions related to the ecology and conservation of marine systems. I use various mathematical and statistical techniques to answer questions centered on population dynamics, evolution of life history traits (e.g. timing of reproduction), metapopulation dynamics, conservation of marine species, and the design of protected area networks. In addition to research, you can read about the importance I place on teaching in my academic career.

Outside of school and research, I spend time scuba diving, rock climbing, reading, hiking, woodworking, welding, learning languages, and spending time with family and friends.

Here is a (somewhat) recentĀ  radio interview on my research as a Fulbright student working with Julia Baum at the University of Victoria.
