Research Interests

My research seeks to understand the impacts of humans on the marine environment and explore the mechanisms and processes that drive biodiversity in this biome. Working on deep sea and coastal systems, I have explored many challenges of ecosystem management. The work I led on deep-sea communities and the consequences of marine litter and microplastics, addresses the immediate challenges of anthropogenic debris, and elucidates ocean-scale patterns of diversity in this under-explored environment. I continue to seek to document and understand ocean health by leading the science output for marine science expeditions.
