Research Interests

  • My research focuses on shallow nearshore marine and estuarine environments dominated by seagrasses and seaweeds. My current research involves restoration and conservation of marine plant populations, e.g., the importance of genetic diversity and the impacts of invasive species. I also work on plant-animal interactions, particularly how the interactions affect the biogeochemical functioning of plant communities and the fitness of plants.

Areas of Emphasis

  • Marine Ecology


  • Environmental Science and Policy
