Research Interests

  • I am broadly interested in the forces that govern populations and communities of marine benthic plants and animals. Current research in my lab is focused on two major areas: 1) the role that positive interactions (mutualism, commensualism) play in structuring marine communities; and 2) the factors affecting the susceptibility of marine communities to invasion by introduced species.
