Positions

Overview

  • My primary research interests are focused upon coastal wetland restoration ecology, conservation and land management within both temperate and tropical habitats. My work has had a particular emphasis on the anthropogenic impacts to wetlands and the management of invasive species within these habitats. Through short and long-term studies, I examine the interplay between plant community patterns and sediment biogeochemistry seeking to gain an increased understanding of the causes of habitat loss, plant species invasions, and for developing innovative strategies for restoring native plant communities, including promoting rare species. The tidal marshes of the Great Bay Estuary and coastal plant communities of Great Marsh have provided an excellent venue for examining the factors affecting native and invasive plant communities, while the mangroves of the Eastern Caribbean have been my base for examining community-based restoration and conservation strategies.
