I specialize in population and conservation genetics, particularly of deep-sea hydrothermal vent endemic invertebrates from the western Pacific. I am interested in how marine populations interact with each other at local and global scales and my primary focus is in the connectivity of deep-sea hydrothermal vent ecosystems and understanding how patterns of connectivity or isolation effect the ability of vent organisms to re-colonize vents after catastrophic disturbance. I am also committed to education and outreach. Through Southern Fried Science, I reach an audience of approximately 1 million readers each year. My popular writing can be found in a variety of traditional and online publications. I received my Ph.D. in Marine Science and Conservation from the Nicholas School of the Environment at Duke University. I am Editor-in-Chief of the popular marine science and conservation blog Southern Fried Science.

What types of projects do you like working on most?

Currently developing a low-cost, open-source CTD for education and outreach.
