My research focuses on understanding how marine organisms have adapted to their habitats and respond to a changing world. My highly interdisciplinary research resides at the crossroads of ecology, physiology, and biogeochemistry. Along with my lab, I also develop novel ocean instruments and samplers such as underwater mass spectrometers, underwater microbial fuel cells, and deep sea autonomous laboratories. Equally important, I am deeply committed to supporting scholars from underrepresented groups at Harvard and beyond by developing and supporting programs that aim to genuinely improve diversity, equity, and inclusion. To that end, I co-founded a Harvard/high school internship program, leads DEI efforts in ocean sciences in the U.S. and abroad, and works closely with United Nations delegates to promote democratization of ocean sciences around the world.
