About our lab: We are an energetic team of fish ecologists interested in understanding how fishes respond to human and natural disturbance, and how these effects permeate through multiple ecological scales (from individual behavior to population and community dynamics and to human dimensions, such as implications for recreational fisheries). We are part of a highly collaborative south Florida research community, composed of scientists, and federal, state and private partners, all with the shared goal of understanding and forecasting coastal ecosystem resilience and responses to large-scale restoration efforts and climate change, and for us, our focus is on fish and the recreational fisheries they support.

About our university: FIU is a public research university in Miami with a highly diverse, vibrant, and growing student body located near the edge of the Everglades. Our multiple campuses serve over 50,000 students, placing FIU among the ten largest universities in the nation. FIU is Carnegie-designated as both a research university with the highest research activity and a community-engaged university. FIU leads the nation in granting bachelor's degrees in the STEM fields to minority students, and is first in awarding STEM master's degrees to Hispanics.
