Expertise I have broad interests and formal training in marine biology, community ecology, marine biogeography and invasion biology and have focused my research primarily on marine benthic communities. I have developed a solid baseline of knowledge about the taxonomy and ecology of marine benthic organisms, and my approach combines intensive descriptive and experimental field data with statistical models to test key questions.
