My interests are diverse and span ecosystems and organisms. A unifying theme to my varied interests is addressing ecological problems with a strong understanding of natural history. Students enrolled in the courses that I teach are encouraged to develop careful observation skills by spending time in the field; it is only through observation that ecological patterns, and sometimes processes, will emerge. I have a range of research experiences in terrestrial, wetland, and marine ecology investigating birds, plants, algae, and invertebrates. My M.S. research focused on the reproductive ecology of green sea urchins (a commercially harvested species) and the nearshore oceanographic conditions during the sea urchin spawning season. Knowledge of the reproductive ecology of a harvested species provides a basis for sound management and the restoration of the resource. Generally, I am fascinated by basic ecological research questions that can be used to inform management and policy decisions.
