Suresh Andrew Sethi, PhD

Assistant Unit Leader - New York Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit

Research Interests

The core of Suresh's research program centers around quantitative fisheries science in both freshwater and marine environments, with a goal of informing fisheries and aquatic natural resource management efforts. Research topics include population abundance and demographic assessments, habitat use studies, phenology, aquatic invasive species management and incorporation of genetic tools into fish and wildlife management. Natural resource systems are linked social-ecological systems; effective management requires consideration of ecological, economic, and sociocultural components of natural resource systems. As such, he also maintains cross-disciplinary collaborations in the social and managerial sciences which seek to understand the dynamics of resource users and identify mechanisms to cope with high variability inherent in natural resource systems. Research topics of interest for these collaborations include risk assessment and risk management in natural resource systems.
