1993. B.S. Biology, Magna Cum Laude, California Polytechnic State University San Luis Obispo


Academic Appointments

2002 – Assistant Professor of Biology, California Polytechnic State Univ., San Luis Obispo

2000 –02 Assistant Professor of Biology, The University of North Carolina at Greensboro
Postdoctoral Research

1999-00 Postdoctoral Researcher, Kewalo Marine Laboratory, University of Hawai’i. Under direction of Drs. Mike Hadfield and Celia Smith. Dispersal and recruitment of marine fouling organisms: specifically, the use of genetic markers to determine population structure of polychaete tubeworms; 2) effects of waterborne chemical factors on settlement behavior of algal spores and gametes; and 3) field-testing of non-toxic, silicon-based coatings for use in prevention of biofouling.


Description of Current Research

Physiological, ecological, and molecular approaches to exploring issues related to the role of larvae in marine invertebrate life cycles; current research includes identifying factors that influence larval settlement and metamorphosis, energetics of larval swimming and metamorphosis, and the effect of natural and anthropogenic dispersal mechanisms on population ecology and speciation. Applied research includes testing and evaluation of non-toxic, foul-release coatings for use in the prevention of biofouling, and development of management practices to prevent the spread of invasive species between small harbors in California via hull fouling.
