I am a marine ecologist, with general interests in the ecology and population dynamics of coastal and marine nekton. Specifically, I am interested in the role of habitat (physical and hydrodynamic) in structuring coastal and marine communities at various spatial and temporal scales, connectivity among habitats and ecosystems and interactions across multiple trophic levels. To address many of these, I apply advanced sampling techniques (e.g., active and passive acoustics; remotely operated vehicles) to simultaneously describe abundance, behavior and distributional patterns of the nekton community. More recently I have begun to integrate interests in food-web ecology and stable isotope analysis to aid in interpreting these patterns and elucidate the ecological processes at work.
