I am interested in disease ecology in fished crustaceans. For my dissertation research I will focus on identifying life history and environmental characteristics of crustaceans that impact their susceptibility to disease-causing pathogens and parasites. I will examine how habitat degradation and fishing pressure in the Florida Keys impact disease in two of Florida’s top fisheries – spiny lobster and stone crab.
