Research in my lab is focused on the ecology and ecophysiology of coastal and marine plant communities. We are particularly interested in the influence of environment, including global climate change on plant metabolism and productivity. We conduct experimental work over a wide range of marine and coastal plant habitats that includes coral reefs, macroalgal beds, mangroves, salt marsh and cyanobacterial mats. Some of our current research projects include investigations of how nutrient enrichment influences mangrove ecosystems, how wetlands are adapting to increases in sea level and how elemental composition influences metabolism of corals and algae over latitude.
