Brief synopsis of current research:
(1)Hydrodynamics in the intertidal zone and its importance on the structure of marine communities, in particular the validity and robustness of hydrodynamic and mathematical models developed at small scales (<100m>scale) over larger scales (>100km)
(2)The relationship between hydrodynamics, microbial/algal film development on larval settlement.
(3)The relationship between natural selection and the local genetic structure of dominant intertidal species.
