Research Interests

My research interests lie in the ecology of marine coastal ecosystems. I am most interested in the general ecology of tropical mangrove systems in the Caribbean. These systems sequester carbon, are crucial barriers to storms, and are nurseries for commercially important juvenile fish and invertebrates. I will focus on abiotic and biotic factors resulting in die-off of mangroves, in addition to other food-web interactions within mangrove systems.
