Biological oceanography-continental shelf ecosystems influenced by large rivers, benthic ecology, distribution and dynamics of hypoxia, eutrophication, environmental effects of habitat alterations, integration of science and policy.
Dr. Brian Roberts|

Ecosystem ecology and biogeochemistry:
I am interested in understanding how human activities affect the capacity of aquatic ecosystems along the continuum from headwater streams and lakes to large rivers, estuaries, and open-ocean ecosystems to process and retain nutrients and energy.

Larval dispersal and recruitment processes in corals, particularly as they pertain to the continuum from highly localized dispersal and recruitment to distant dispersal.
