Lobster behavioral ecology

Fundamentally, I am interested in how decapod crustaceans interact with each other and their habitat, especially in relation to fishery pressures and changing environmental conditions. My work at UNH will primarily be centered on how the stresses of shell disease and ocean acidification may impact American lobster mating behaviors, as well as investigating sound production by lobsters.
