Jaime Ashander
Jaime Ashander, Population Biology Graduate Group

    My research focuses on understanding the consequences of rapid evolution to changing environments for processes in population ecology. In particular, I'm interested in transient dynamics, connecting models to data, and forecasting. I also maintain interest in the ecological and evolutionary dynamics of sea lice and salmonids, which I focused on during my Master's with Prof. Mark Lewis at the University of Alberta.

Lewis Barnett, Graduate Group in Ecology
   I am interested in how temporal environmental variability and trophic interactions affect population and community dynamics.  Within this context, I aim to understand what combinations of marine resource management practices (e.g., conventional fisheries management, no-take marine reserves) provide the best outcomes in terms of maintaining population persistence and fishery yield.

Allison Dedrick, Graduate Group in Ecology
    I am interested in the effects of environmental change and variability on the population dynamics of marine organisms and the implications for management. I am currently focusing on the effects of ocean acidification on invertebrates.

Nao Takashina, Visiting Graduate Student from Kyushu University  

    I am interested in spatial fisheries management integrating ecological and socio-economic processes. Currently, my research focus is on understanding how fishermen/managersí decisions about a management scheme affects the consequence of fisheries management, with an aims to providing a better management framework.
