Her expertise and training includes marine science, fisheries, trophic ecology, and climate change impacts on biodiversity and ecosystems. Recently she served as lead author on the National Climate Assessment's technical input report, "Impacts of Climate Change on Biodiversity, Ecosystems, and Ecosystem Services".
