We are a group of coastal ecologists in the Department of Environmental Sciences at the University of Virginia. Our research projects broadly focus on how changing climate, carbon sequestration, and land use affect coastal ecosystems, including seagrass, marshes, and oyster reefs, and the mechanisms underlying their resilience.
