Research Interests:


My research interests include environmental immunology, molecular physiology, and molecular biology of marine invertebrates and fishes. I am developing a research program that applies molecular and cellular techniques to field-oriented problems in an ecological context. I am specifically interested in hypotheses concerning gene expression in disease pathogenesis, host resistance, host/pathogen interactions, and environmental influences on gene expression. I prefer framing research questions and interpreting results in the context of the life history of the organisms being studied.
