Research Interests

  • There are crucial connections between physical attributes of the ocean environment and its rich biology, particularly in a kelp forest system, where sea floor communities link intimately with water column processes. I am interested in context-dependent succession in kelp forests and the effects and influence of changes in hydrodynamic conditions across an inter-annual spectrum.
