BioI am a lecturer at Stanford University’s Hopkins Marine Station, where I teach courses in kelp forest ecology, statistics, and scientific computing. In general, I study drivers of spatial and temporal change in marine ecosystems. Ongoing and recent research projects include:
-examining the consequences of fisheries closures on fisher behavior
-understanding why some coral reefs fare better than their neighbors
-biodiversity and body size change, particularly in the context of recent human impacts
I also lead an NSF-funded Research Coordination Network in Undergraduate Biology Education focused on unifying curriculum across marine stations, with the goal of diversifying participation in marine ecology.

Current Research and Scholarly InterestsWe examine two aspects of organism-environment interactions: How does stress from physical (e.g., temperature) and chemical (oxygen levels, pH) factors perturb organisms and how do organisms respond, adaptively, to cope with this stress? We examine evolutionary adaptation and phenotypic acclimatization using a wide variety of marine animals, including Antarctic fishes and invertebrates from intertidal habitats on the coastlines of temperate and tropical seas.
