Research in our lab focuses on characterizing physiological responses of marine organisms to environmental change. Major themes include Environmental Epigenetics, Reproductive Biology, and Genomics.


Our lab strives to make all research products readily available. This includes publishing of online lab notebooks, presentations, data, and more. This is an effective means to openly share our activities with the public.


Learn more about the lab members including their diverse backgrounds and research interests. Current research activities involve ocean acidification, aquaculture, corals, geoducks, and more!
