Research interests

I am a coastal marine ecologist broadly interested in using integrative methods to bridge the gap between basic ecology and evolution research with conservation biology. I use a diverse set of tools and data ranging from large scale field studies, population genetics, historical museum records, life history theory, meta-analyses and science communication to better understand and help mitigate the ecological and evolutionary consequences of human impacts on coastal marine species.
