Centers, Labs, and Programs

We examine the diversity and activity of microbial life in the deep sea , including within the deepest ocean trenches.

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.

Levin is a marine ecologist who studies benthic ecosystems in the deep sea and shallow water.
