I’m a research professor in the Department of Biology at the University of Washington and based full-time at Friday Harbor Labs.  When I’m not teaching or out in the field, I also serve as the Associate Director for the College of the Environment at UW.   My academic interests focus on marine intertidal ecology, including plant-herbivore interactions, the classification, long-term monitoring, and maintenance of biodiversity of intertidal habitats, and invertebrate functional morphology.
