Research Interests

Generally, I am interested in studying the science and management of marine ecosystems. I am particularly interested in understanding how human-caused stressors impact the ecological health of marine environments. My research will focus on the coastal ecology of oyster farms and assessing the ecosystem services this form of aquaculture may provide. This research will also include relevant policy and management considerations informed by my experiences in Rutgers Coastal Climate Risk and Resilience program.
