Ridouan Bani is a postdoctoral Scholar with the School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences working in collaboration with Dr. Dan Holland (Northwest Fisheries Science Center). Ridouan’s research project focuses on developing bio-economic models of several West Coast Fisheries (Dungeness crab, salmon, albacore tuna, and pink shrimp) to understand 1) how environmental variability travels through, and is dampened or amplified by, linked social and ecological processes in fisheries systems and 2) how more integrated management can be used to increase resilience and human benefits.
Ridouan received a Ph.D in Biology from McGill, Montreal Canada in 2020 and his thesis focused on exposing the relationship between marine species’ pelagic traits and dispersal variability due to physical transport and how it can be used in predicting future responses to climate change and marine protected areas network stability. Ridouan received his Master’s and Bachelor’s degrees in Mathematics from Northeastern Illinois University.
