For my dissertation, I am using the three sympatric species of Crepidula found in the northwest Atlantic: C. fornicata, C. convexa, and C. plana. I am investigating factors that are important in range expansion in calyptraeids, both secondary expansion after a species introduction and native range expansion in the face of climate change. I am currently working on a project to look at how small-scale temperature variation around Long Island influences the seasonality of reproduction in Crepidula species, as well as a project looking at genetic structure in native and introduced populations of C. convexa (a direct developer).
