Professor
  • AB Washington University in St Louis, MO (1982-1985) – Microbial Genetics
  • Ph.D. University of South Florida (1988-1993) – Marine Sciences/Microbiology/Molecular Biology
  • Postdoctoral Fellowship Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (1994-1996)
Research Interests:

Research in my laboratory focuses on the role of microbial diversity in marine environments, the development and application of the tools of molecular biology in plankton ecology, and the discovery and ecology of parasite and pathogens in marine organisms.  The impact and consequences of climate change on living marine systems focuses much of the ongoing research in my research group.  A large emphasis is placed on the development and evaluation of new methods, particularly those that can be used in situ.  In addition, a focus of my laboratory is the adaptation of molecular biological tools to a wide variety of questions in applied marine sciences, biotechnology, bioremediation, and invasive species issues.
