Community ecology; marine vertebrate predation and competition.
My research focuses on population dynamics and species interactions of marine species, mainly reef fishes. Below are brief description of several aspects of this work:(1) Population dynamics of damselfishes, (2) Temporal patterns in reef communities, and (3) Development of restoration techniques for surfgrass (Phyllospadix).
