We examine the diversity and activity of microbial life in the deep sea , including within the deepest ocean trenches.
The ecology, zoogeography, taxonomy, and evolution of deep-sea organisms, with emphasis on the benthos.
Centers, Labs, and Programs
Supports scientific research by providing specimens for study on the taxonomy, evolution, and ecology of benthic invertebrates.
Research in our lab traces the flow of organic matter through marine ecosystems, focusing on the trophic connectivity of species and assemblages in deep pelagic waters.
