I have been hooked on intertidal invertebrates ever since watching shore crabs scurry away from cobbles I had overturned as a kid on the shores of Richardson Bay. I am a Research Associate affiliated with both UCSB’s Marine Science Institute and the California Academy of Sciences and have enjoyed teaching at the Oregon Institute of Marine Biology, the Hatfield Marine Science Center, and the Midland School in the Santa Ynez Valley. My research centers on nudibranchs and their development, prey, climate-related range shifts, and systematics. I have side interests in botany, and am especially fond of endemics. I enjoy photography and can’t resist requests to identify mystery organisms found by others between Pacific tides. I'm not a scuba-diver, so my marine-related observations come mainly from the intertidal zone, where since 2008 I have been frequently accompanied by my eagle-eyed twins, Ziggy and Will (older now than in my profile pic!).
