Research years

Continuing investigations of the ecomechanics of coastal marine invertebrates and macroalgae.  Recent projects in our lab include: 1) the causes and consequences of variable attachment in wild and farmed mussels, 2) the effect of multiple stressors, such as ocean acidification and increased temperature, on the performance of macroalgae and bivalves, and 3) the effect of temperature on predator-prey interactions.
