My research is focused on near-shore marine and estuarine environments where I study the impact of human-induced changes in habitat and water quality on populations and communities. Current research involves the dynamics of a lethal pathogen that infects Caribbean spiny lobsters and the potential impact of ecosystem change on disease epidemiology. This work is funded by NSF through 2008 and is titled, “Disease dynamics in degraded nurseries: ecology of viral disease in a social, marine animal”.
Past projects include the effect of recurring cyanobacteria plankton blooms on benthic community relationships in Florida Bay and the impact of proposed water quality changes resulting from the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Project (CERP) on benthic organisms such as soft corals, sponges, and lobsters.
