Research Interests
I have broad ecological research interests that involve the study of species interactions in nearshore, estuarine, and marsh environments. The majority of my research focuses on quantitatively measuring impacts of non-indigenous species on native biota in invaded marine communities. Interactions with non-native species are the second leading cause of endangerment and extinction of native species. Therefore I have sought to develop and implement new quantitative tools that 1) aid our understanding of how and when invading species will impact native systems and 2) help increase our ability to predict outcomes of future invasions.
