Research Area

Katie is interested in the ecology of kelp forest and coral reefs, specifically how these habitats are structured by herbivory and how direct and indirect interactions with humans modify the processes of herbivory in these systems. Katie has spent several years working in the Santa Barbara Channel conducting dive surveys as part the PISCO long-term large-scale kelp forest monitoring program and recently completed her masters studying spatial ecology of tropical herbivorous parrotfishes.
