Biodiversity in the coastal ocean
My current projects in the coastal ocean are focused on two Large Marine Ecosystems (LMEs): the Northeast U.S. Shelf (NES) LME and the California Current LME.
Northeast U.S. Shelf (NES)
I am co-PI and Information Manager for the Northeast U.S. Shelf (NES) Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER) project.
I am co-PI for a new NOAA-funded project "Harmful Algal Bloom Community Technology Accelerator" in collaboration with the Southern California Coastal Ocean Observing System (SCCOOS), Central and Northern California Ocean Observing System (CeNCOOS), University of California Santa Cruz, and Axiom Data Science [link to WHOI press release].

Intertidal invertebrates in Woods Hole
The first comprehensive survey of benthic marine invertebrates in Woods Hole was conducted in 1871. Do we find the same species today, as 150 yrs ago?
