Ocean Twilight Zone

We are just beginning some work on WHOI's highly collaborative Ocean Twilight Zone project. Our lab will be conducting population genomics on mesopelagic fish species, to elucidate population connectivity and adaptation across wide swathes of open ocean.

Funding Agencies

The Ocean Twilight Zone project is primarily funded by the Audacious Project, a TED-organized initiative supported by the Science Philanthropy Alliance.


This is a hugely collaborative effort, encompassing biologists, physical oceanographers, engineers, and others. Check out the OTZ project page for all the details.
