Research Description

Oceans and Human Health // Applied Disease Ecology and Conservation for a Global Impact

Our laboratory seeks diversity and inclusion of many viewpoints. We are highly interdisciplinary and apply broad ecological theory with novel solutions directed towards moderating waterborne pathogens and reducing risks of disease outbreaks that impact human and ecosystem health in a rapidly changing world.

We currently use laboratory-based molecular methods, field surveys and desktop data-driven analyses that focus on connecting public health and coastal marine ecosystems - such as coral and bivalve reefs, mangroves, seagrasses, wetlands and salt marshes. Our key topics include clean water, microbial rafting on plastic waste, food security through fisheries and aquaculture, marine and terrestrial protected areas, restoration, urbanization and sustainable coastal development, ecotourism, satellite remote sensing and combining cloud computing with big data analyses, marine policy, ecological engineering, and global change biology.
