Past Graduate Student
Gavin (MS 2004, PhD 2012) is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Fisheries Oceanography at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth’s School for Marine Science and Technology. His research focuses on developing interdisciplinary modelling approaches to extend the scope of applications for fisheries and ecosystem assessment methods, and testing the performance of decision support tools for living marine resource management.During his graduate studies in the Punt lab, Gavin worked on a range of statistical and modelling approaches for the assessment and management of Steller sea lions, Eastern North Pacific gray whales, and demersal finfish species on the US west coast and in Southeast Australia. He has also completed postdoctoral positions at CSIRO Marine and Atmospheric Research in Hobart Tasmania, and at NOAA’s National Marine Fisheries Service in Woods Hole, Massachusetts.
