The success of all species depends on their physiological  performance. I study how physiology interacts with the environment to interpret ecology.

human impacts

Humans are key players in every marine ecosystem on Earth. I study our impacts on coastal ecology to help us consciously manage them.


Species must be able to survive and thrive within the physical limits of the world. I study biomechanical constraints on ecology and evolution.

ecology & evolution

Patterns in nature result from historical and on-going biological interactions. I study eco-evo processes to describe and predict current and future systems.
