He assists the research efforts of Professors Eyal Frank (University of Chicago’s Harris School of Public Policy) and Kimberly Oremus (University of Delaware’s School of Marine Science and Policy), which focus on the efficacy of U.S. conservation policies designed to rebuild populations depleted by overfishing and maintain those that have recovered.
