Personal profile

Research interests

Research Expertise:
Ecological modeling | Individual to community responses to environmental stressors | Life history strategies of marine invertebrates | Biocontrol of crop pests

My research interests focus on how stressful environmental conditions affect individual organisms, and how those individual-level effects scale up to population- and community-level effects in space and through time. I study both natural and anthropogenic (human-induced) stressors as the drivers of these ecological changes. The techniques I use include empirical, manipulative studies as well as the construction of ecological models to project short-term and/or individual-level effects to larger scales.

I’ve studied many marine invertebrate taxa, including copepods, ctenophores, and the larvae of snails and marine polychaetes. Despite my background in invertebrates, I’ve also collaborated with others who work on Florida seagrasses and wasps that infect and damage wheat crops in the Northern Plains of the United States and Canada.
