Associate Editor of BioInvasions Records
Expertise My research uses the behavior and physiology of crustaceans and fish to determine the effects of changes in the physical environment (temperature, salinity, sound, etc.) on distributions, survival, and ecology of marine and aquatic organisms. I am also interested in how changing human behaviors impact the survival of species, and how aquaculture can be used to augment food security, economic security, and conservation of marine and aquatic animals. My current projects include: investigating the effects of geography on temperature tolerance and survival in the blue crab Callinectes sapidus, shelter competition in crustaceans, modeling freshwater crab distributions in Colombia, South America, coordinating sand tiger shark reproductive projects with other aquariums, evaluating how ocean farming affects the coastal environment, and quantifying the effects of noise on crustaceans and fish for the U.S. Navy.
