Research interests

My past research was focused on anthropogenic impacts to deep, cold-water coral communities with particular emphasis on the effects imposed by the 2010 Deep-water Horizon oil spill disaster in the Gulf of Mexico. I'm interested in characterizing stress responses at the cellular level using high-throughput sequencing and transcriptomics. My current postdoctoral research at Florida International University is focused on understanding how different modes of bioluminescence evolved in deep-sea crustaceans, as well as characterizing different types of autogenic, bioluminescent organs and visual pathways via a combination of phylogenetic and transcriptomic methods.
