Academic background


Summary of research

Research focuses on 2 areas of marine ecology: 1) self-nonself recognition and the evolution of cooperation in colonial marine animals, and (2) rocky intertidal and subtidal community ecology, with a particular focus on interactions between native and introduced species.
