The faculty of the Center for Marine and Environmental

Studies uses its unparalleled access to diverse tropical marine environments to engage in a variety of field and lab based research projects. Our goal is to provide much needed information to scientists, managers, and other stake-holders in the public and private sector by harnessing our collective expertise in areas ranging from coral reef ecology to oceanography and climate. Our overarching research theme is Integrated Caribbean Coastal Ecosystems (ICCE), under which we have numerous cross-cutting research areas. These areas involve the application of modern technology to highly collaborative, hypothesis driven research agendas. Our research areas include

  • Evolutionary and Ecological Patterns and Processes

  • Ocean and Coastal Processes

  • Environmental Analysis and Management
