My research interests include the ecology of temperate reefs and subtropical carbonate rhodolith beds with and emphasis on macroalgal ecology algal physiology and species interactions. I have been working in the Gulf of California for the past 17 years. I am particularly interested in the role that macroalgae play as a substrate and food resource in subtidal communities and how algal dynamics influence community dynamics. Additionally, I am interested in the growth and establishment of carbonate reefs both past, present and future.
