Areas of Expertise: I am a marine biologist interested in how organisms respond to global ocean change. Two prominent changes currently occurring in the oceans at a global scale are ocean warming and it’s “evil twin” ocean acidification. Most of my work has focused on the responses of deep-sea corals (Anthozoa: Scleractinia) to ocean acidification and warming in the Gulf of Mexico and Antarctica, but I have also studied echinoderms and mollusks in a similar context in intertidal and polar systems. In my research, I seek to identify how global ocean change impacts fundamental biological processes (e.g. growth, reproduction, metabolism) in marine invertebrates, and if species possess resiliency to these changes.
