Research and Professional Interests:

My research combines ecological and evolutionary principles to study the population biology of coastal marine invertebrates. I study the processes that determine how marine organisms adapt to environments that vary in space and time and why their population size and structure varies in space and time. Topics studied include larval dispersal, population connectivity, spatial population dynamics, life history evolution, adaptive phenotypic plasticity, maternal effects, and local adaptation. I typically use some combination of field and laboratory experiments, field surveys, and mathematical modeling. Please see the Lab home page for more info.
