My primary research goal is directed toward understanding aquatic species distribution in response to the changing ecosystem using statistical models. My interests involve applying and expanding statistical techniques to solve ecological problems in aquatic species spatial distribution, such as spatial autocorrelation, zero-inflation, and flawed sampling designs.
