Capstone Projects: I am available each year to serve as an advisor to students wishing to conduct capstone research with my lab group. Research in my lab focuses on the analysis of spatial pattern and process in marine systems. For students interested in conducting capstone research with my lab, I recommend they have some quantitative background (e.g. statistics), experience working with computers and coursework in ecology and GIS. My students and I primarily study the ecology of marine invertebrates. However, in the past, I have conducted research on the foraging ecology of shorebirds and studies looking at the landscape genetics of black surperch in Monterey Bay. In general, we are more interested in studying interesting research topics as opposed to a particular marine organism or system. I am also available, on a limited basis, to serve as an advisor on capstone projects that fall outside the primary research themes of my lab. Please contact me in the early Fall of each academic year if you are interested in conducting your capstone research with the Marine Landscape Ecology Lab.
