My work focuses on the ecology of coastal shallow-water environments. We explore the role and function of foundation species in providing key ecosystem services. Using laboratory, field-based and statistical research methods, we work at the individual, population and region-wide scales to better understand how foundation species support ecosystem services and resilience. We collaborate with researchers from around the Gulf of Mexico, across the United States, and internationally; we work extensively with state and federal agencies and non-profit organizations to help provide data to support management and restoration of our coasts.
