We combine research and education aimed at enhancing aquatic biodiversity, including large-scale field studies of salmon and their ecosystems. Our projects range from impacts of nutrients from salmon on birds and plants to links between life history traits of fish and vulnerability to extinction.
I hold the Tom Buell BC Leadership Chair in Salmon Conservation and Management at Simon Fraser University. This research chair is funded through a partnership between the British Columbia Leading Edge Endowment Fund, the Pacific Salmon Foundation, and numerous private and corporate donors.

The Chair was named after Tom Buell, former CEO of Weldwood of Canada. He was an ardent outdoorsman with a deep concern for environmental protection and the sustainability of Pacific salmon stocks.
