K. Allison Smith

I am interested in the function and distribution of organisms in physically and chemically complex marine ecosystems. My approach is to focus on how small-scale processes influence large-scale patterns using a combination of laboratory measurements, field observations, and biophysical and biogeochemical models. I am working on a wide range of interdisciplinary projects that combine elements of ecophysiology, biogeochemistry, and oceanography. General topics include bacterial influences on particulate carbon flux, multiple stressors in pelagic habitats, and geographic variation in climatic sensitivity of mussel populations on intertidal shores.
