The Invertebrate Ecology Lab is an integrative lab that combines ship-based, field, and laboratory studies to understand how invertebrates interact with, affect, and are affected by their surrounding environment.  Research topics include morphological studies of feeding structures and invertebrate anatomy, in situ and laboratory measurements of metabolic rates, diet studies, and assessments of the effectiveness of marine protected areas on benthic invertebrate species.

We are a welcoming group that celebrates diverse backgrounds and strives for an inclusive environment for aspiring marine scientists of any background, age, race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, or dis/ability.
