As the Shellfish Hatchery Manager and Extension Specialist my research interests start from the research being conducted in a shellfish hatchery and extend to how that research can be applicable to the growers within the shellfish aquaculture industry.  My hatchery specific research interests include shellfish biology, selective breeding, husbandry, larval rearing, algal production, genomic selection, and shellfish diseases.

As an Extension Specialist through Maryland Sea Grant and University of Maryland Extension my research objective is to support the growing aquaculture industry in Maryland through sharing knowledge of shellfish production and grow-out methods, public and stakeholder education, transfer of scientific research, as well as cultivation of new aquaculture and fisheries species.
