Welcome to Gavin Fay’s lab at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth.

Read about our lab culture & philosophy.

Our research focuses on developing interdisciplinary modelling approaches to extend the scope of applications for fisheries and ecosystem assessment methods, and testing the performance of decision support tools for living marine resource management.

We apply a range of statistical and modelling approaches for the assessment and management of fish, marine mammal, and marine reptile populations, and actively collaborate with academic and agency scientists in the Northeast US, US West Coast, Australia, and Europe.

Lab Code of Conduct

Prospective graduate students may contact Gavin about his availability as a faculty advisor.
