My scholarly activities are focused on the ecology of crustacean larvae. I am particularly interested in the factors that drive year-to-year variation in population size. I am retired from the teaching faculty and I am not accepting new students. However, I will be available to serve on graduate-student advisory committees for the foreseeable future.
Ecology of non-indigenous crab species in the Middle Atlantic Bight.
I am currently involved in a number of writing projects. These include a review paper on behavioral adaptations in crab larvae and a book chapter on responses of crustacean larvae to visual, chemical, and tactile stimuli. The book chapter is part of an Oxford University Press series on the natural history of the Crustacea.
