My fields of interest include population dynamics and community ecology, invasion biology, conservation biology, biodiversity of marine and estuarine systems, and applications of ecological theory to coastal management problems. My approach involves field and laboratory experiments that answer basic ecological questions and provide solutions to management problems. I accept graduate students through the Graduate Group in Ecology.
