Stacy is an MLML Alumna who graduated from the Benthic Ecology Lab in 1996. Her research interests focus on benthic community ecology in disturbed habitats. Disturbances can include both anthropogenic (human-mediated) and natural processes. One of the key issues in disturbance ecology is the availability of good background or baseline data, and in the Benthic Lab we have a strong interest in rescuing and developing historical data sets, incorporating disparate information into standardized databases, and making them widely accessible. We take a holistic approach to our work, placing it in a larger context of ecological understanding across habitats and sustainability of ecosystem health both locally and globally.
