Our focus is on basic ecological and evolutionary research, with application to contemporary issues such as conservation biology, invasive species, marine protected areas, and global change:
i. Long-term ecological and evolutionary studies of community assembly and dynamics
ii. Systematics, biogeography, ecology, and evolution of scyphozoan jellyfishes
iii. Comparative population genomics of intertidal invertebrates
iv. Population genomics of Mastigias jellyfishes
v. Island biogeography, ecology, & evolution
vi. Marine, terrestrial, freshwater, aerial comparisons & contrasts
Our lab aims to foster community among all individuals with varying backgrounds and experiences. We value the origination and development of novel ideas and perspectives and discovery at their convergence. We wish to encourage, participate in, and cultivate a collaborative and creative research process that provides opportunity for shared understanding. Into this process, we welcome all perspectives that are not yet well-represented and the changes they will bring. We commit to facilitating equity, diversity and inclusion.
