Our research group at UCLA performs interdisciplinary work drawing on elements of biology, oceanography, geology, and climate science. My current research is centered on two themes that are related: (1) the biology of organisms and its response to changing environmental conditions, and (2) the history of climate and the evolution of environments over time, including links to the evolution of life and biomineralization.
The motivating questions guiding my current research include: How does the physical environment influence the biology of organisms? Can we design experiments to understand which species are most vulnerable to changing ocean conditions?
