About Dr. Weng
Kevin Weng is an assistant professor at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science. His group is interested in the migration and distribution of marine fishes, how these patterns are changing, and what might be driving the changes. To help improve prediction of future changes we are collaborating with physiologists and modelers to study the environmental limits of fishes, which may help us understand which variables are most likely to shape redistributions in range.
