Aaron is an applied ecologist working to solve small-scale fisheries problems in the context of climate change, using Bayesian models to integrate across disciplines and make inferences about how the world works. He has worked extensively on interdiciplinary projects in coral reef ecosystems throughout the Indo-Pacific and is applying these approaches to a wide range of stakeholder-driven projects in Canada. Aaron contributes extensively to the fisheries and ecology literature (over 70 peer-reviewed publications) in areas relating to environmental disturbance, human impacts, fisheries livelihoods, and food web structure. He has been honoured by the Fisheries Society of the British Isles (2018) for his contributions to fisheries science and currently heads the integrated fisheries lab at Dalhousie University.
