My primary research interests are marine ecology, invasion biology, and environmental science. Specifically, I study how animals alter marine habitats and communities and damage maritime infrastructure (e.g. docks and pilings) and resources. I am particularly interested in how human activities such as climate change and the introduction of invasive species exacerbate the ecological and economic effects of animals in coastal environments.
