My current research has three foci:

  1. examining the role of the seagrass-mangrove-reef complex in the ontogeny of economically-valuable coral reef fishes (i.e., groupers, snappers, grunts, great barracuda);
  2. developing methods for, and assessing the effectiveness of, ecosystem restoration;
  3. furthering knowledge of the early life history, movement and conservation of pelagic fishes.

Other research experience/interests include: conducting empirical field and laboratory research to support ecosystem modeling efforts that seek to link land use, terrestrial hydrology and coastal hydrodynamics with aquatic animal and plant populations; examining the efficacy of changes in fishing gear; quantifying the functional “costs” of habitat depletion, fragmentation, degradation and/or change for ecologically and economically important organisms; investigating biological responses to episodic stressors with a focus on how stress frequency, magnitude and duration affect community structure and function; exploring how molecular techniques may be applied to tackle basic problems in species and stock identification.
