Thanks for visiting my webpage! I am a doctoral student at Northeastern University’s Marine Science Center in Nahant, MA just outside of Boston. Currently, I am working with my advisor, Dr. Jonathan Grabowski,Striper1 (1 of 1) on a variety of research projects, most of which involve striped bass. Overall, my research aims to quantify the predation strength of striped bass on local prey communities and assess the health effects of a crustacean-based diet on large striped bass. Additionally, I work with New England fishing communities to understand their perceptions of fisheries management and how their behavior may change in response to policy change. Both aspects of my research attempt to inform management by utilizing ecological and social data sets. Please feel free to email me at rdmurphyjr@gmail.com with any questions.
