Research Interests

  • The roles of food resources in the early life stages of invertebrate populations. Current projects include measuring the effects of near-bottom currents on the feeding behaviors and growth rates of interface-feeding polychaetes and testing the effects of short-term food variability on the development rate and size at metamorphosis of meroplanktonic larvae.

Areas of Emphasis

  • Marine Ecology
