I am interested in how abiotic stressors, particularly anthropogenically driven stressors like ocean acidification, impact algal dominated nearshore marine communities.

Understanding the outcomes of anthropogenic climate change is one of the most pressing issues facing biologists today; while we expect that climate change will have large impacts on community structure and ecosystem function, we have only a minimal understanding of what those impacts will be. Past studies on the impacts of ocean acidification on marine organism have been almost exclusively lab based and have focused on the physiology and performance of individual organisms, usually calcifying invertebrates. It is important that we begin to look at the broader impacts of ocean acidification in realistic assemblages of interacting species, if we hope to be able to predict the outcomes of global climate change.
