Collaborators

I’ve had the opportunity to work with lots of amazing folks in ecology and other related fields. Here are a few of them.

Kelp Forest Ecology

What are the drivers that structure coastal food webs? This is the question that drives the Coastal Trophic Ecology Lab and collaborators:

Antarctic Seaweed Gradients

How are seaweed communities along the Western Antarctic Peninsula distributed, and what are the forces that create the patterns we observe? Along with Aaron Galloway, Julie Schram and these collaborators, we spent two months diving Antarctica to find out:

Ocean Bitemap

With over 50 collaborators the Ocean Bitemap project, organized by the Smithsonian’s MarineGEO program, is a world-wide network of researchers relating predation rates of nearshore communities with habitat structure. Lead participants are:

J. Emmett Duffy

Seagrass Metacommunities

What are the patterns of invertebrate diversity in seagrass meadows, and how do scale and abiotic processes contribute to realized communities? This was the subject of my Master’s Thesis and a collaboration with:

Mary I. O’Connor
Associate Professor
University of British Columbia


Nicole Knight
PhD Candidate
McGill University


Carolyn Prentice
Masters Student
Simon Fraser University

Subtidal Sea Urchins

Will urchins migrate seasonally with food availability and do their pattern of movement impact benthic microhabitats? Lead by Alex Lowe and Aaron Galloway, this research at Friday Harbor Laboratories also included:
