RESEARCH AREAS

Nutritional ecology of suspension feeders
Capturing particles suspended in the water is a unique feeding strategy for aquatic
animals. My studies focus on measuring the metabolism, diet composition, feeding
preferences, and feeding rates of marine suspension feeders. I am particularly
interested in developing underwater (in situ) methods which facilitate the study of
undisturbed animals in their natural environment.

Sediment resuspension by fish
Benthic (ground) fish resuspend large amount of sediments while foraging and seeking
for shelter. We discovered that fish activity alone could maintain a layer of turbid
water near the bottom (nepheloid benthic layer), enhance the transport of nutrients
and benthic oxygen demand, and considerably reduce organic carbon sequestration.
Currently, we are developing tools that will allows us to quantify these processes
and understand their effects in different marine habitats.

Benthic-pelagic coupling
Benthic organisms are dependent on hydrodynamics and other processes at the water
column for every aspect of their life history. In many cases, the activity of benthic
communities can also control water column processes. We are using a variety of
methods to quantify these process in the field.
