Coastal Ecology Laboratory
Coastal Ecology Laboratory

My lab is interested in the field of marine ecology. Our lab use both molecular methods including DNA barcoding, transcriptomes and genomes and morphological approach to study the phylogeography and phylogeny of marine crustaceans. We also interested in the larval and settlement biology of barnacle larvae and examine how they settle on different substratum including live coral and sponges surfaces. We relate such larval behavior to the coral/sponge symbiosis. Recently, we also working on effect of microplastics on the survival and responses of barnacle larvae.

Current projects in the lab involve:

  1. Diversity and host-usage of coral and sponge associated barnacles
  2. Phylogeography and diversity of intertidal barnacles
  3. Microplastics and marine zooplankton

We welcome you to join our lab if you are interested in marine sciences.
