Research interests

Dan is a Visiting Scholar at Duke University's Marine Lab, and in 2018 will join Louisiana State University's Department of Oceanographic and Coastal Sciences as an Assistant Professor. His research focuses on the connectivity of coral reef metapopulations, and on the resilience of marine metapopulations to perturbations and climate changes. He has continued interest in mesophotic coral ecosystems as potential refugia from climate change - and how these refuges and adjacent habitats interact through the exchange of individuals or genes to produce persistent metapopulations. Tools employed by Dan's lab include simulation and ecological modeling, coral reproductive histology, and deep genome sequencing; all aimed at deciphering the mechanisms that control reef population connectivity, and how connectivity influences persistence in time.
