Research Interests

  • Estuarine ecology
  • Physical / biological interaction in the coastal zone
  • Habitat changes
  • Ocean currents
  • Tropical storms
  • Remote sensing
  • Geographic Information Systems
  • Marine invertebrates


I am interested in the impacts of changes in water quality (e.g. salinity, sediment, nutrients) in estuarine environments, particularly in terms of their influence on invertebrates. I am especially interested in decapod crustaceans and bivalves.
