Specialties
  • Application of geology and seafloor mapping to benthic habitat studies
  • Submarine volcanism
  • Past research in igneous petrology and geochemistry of mid-ocean ridges and seamounts
Current Research Projects
  • Alaska Coral and Sponge Initiative (AKCSI) : benthic habitat analysis in the Gulf of Alaska and Aleutians at regional scale, and new focus sites for study of Primnoa pacifica (with NOAA fisheries biologists led by Chris Rooper and Bob Stone, and geologist Gary Greene)
  • Kachemak Bay mapping, application to habitat and resource management (with Ph.D. Oceanography student Melissa Meiner-Johnson and NOAA scientist Kris Holderied) Benthic habitat mapping and analysis on the outer continental shelf around Kodiak, Alaska (with M.S. Fisheries graduate Sean Rooney, geologist Gary Greene, fisheries oceanographer Brenda Norcross)
  • Bogoslof Volcano: resurfacing by volcanic eruptions as a natural experiment in seafloor invertebrate colonization (with fishery biologist Mark Zimmermann at NOAA Alaska Fisheries Science Center)
  • Aleutian forearc structural fabric revealed in seafloor maps: strain accomodation and its relationship to plate convergence (with M.S. Geology graduate Lena Krutikov)
  • Application of mapping and seafloor geology to studies of deep coral habitat in the central Aleutians (with geologist Gary Greene, Jon Heifetz and Bob Stone at NOAA Alaska Fisheries Science Center)
