I am interested in how climate and local physical processes influence marine food webs and carbon cycling. I study zooplankton ecology west of the Antarctic Peninsula, where regional sea ice decline has transformed the pelagic ecosystem over recent decades. The Palmer Long-Term Ecological Research program has studied change in this region since 1990.
