Dan joined NOAA Fisheries in 2016 after postdocs with the University of Maine and Cornell University (both at USGS Coop Units).  At the regional office in Gloucester, he worked on fisheries monitoring and bycatch estimation, contributing support to the development of Amendment 23 and electronic monitoring programs in the Northeast multispecies fishery. While serving as a member of the Population Evaluation Tool subgroup, he helped with development of an assessment framework for quantifying extinction risk of North Atlantic right whales.  In 2022, Dan joined the Northeast Fisheries Science Center to work on large whale population monitoring and estimation methods.
