Current research conducted by me, my students, and collaborators falls into two broad categories:
1) Paleoecology and macroevolution with particular interest in the environmental and biological consequences of the events leading up to the formation of the Isthmus of Panama over the past 15 million years.
2) Historical ecology of human impacts and their implications for marine conservation biology and management.
Ecology and evolution of marine invertebrates; human impacts on tropical marine communities.
