In my research, I emphasize the use of controlled field experiments to solve applied problems and to answer questions posed by the public. In particular, my work focuses on issues related to marine invertebrate aquaculture, fisheries management and restoration. Within the Gulf of Mexico, species of interest include the eastern oyster, blue crabs and shrimp, which form the basis for important commercial and recreational fisheries.

My research interests include all aspects of fisheries, restoration and aquaculture of marine invertebrates.
