Research Interests

The research in the Nye lab centers around fisheries oceanography and ecology. We use mathematical and statistical methods to study fish populations and coastal ecosystems. Our current research is focused on how environmental variability and anthropogenic climate change including ocean acidification affects fishes, populations, marine ecosystems and fisheries. Past research has documented shifts in spatial distribution of fish in response to warming water temperatures and fishing and sought to determine the mechanisms behind changes in distribution and abundance. Current research seeks to understand how climate influences fish populations, trophic interactions, and the emergent properties of marine ecosystems.
