My main area of interest is into how environmental changes affect organisms at the individual level. I am using my role in SERPENT to make use of ROV technology to assess the impacts caused by deep water drilling on the benthic fauna. I am also interested in how these environmental changes affect the functioning of the ecosystem by studying the changing abundance of organisms from different functional groups. In certain systems parasites can be viewed as environmental influences on organisms. I have an interest in the interaction between parasites and other environmental stressors on ecology.
