About the Lab   

Our lab’s research centers on the community and population ecology of aquatic organisms, with a special emphasis on marine fishes. We are particularly interested in linkages between habitat selection, individual responses, and survival. The work is both laboratory and field-based, and we typically use both quantitative and experimental approaches to elucidate the importance of biotic and abiotic factors that influence growth, condition, and survival. In addition, we are currently using a variety of natural markers to solve ecological problems.
