I specialize in environmental, resource and energy economics.  Most of my current work is on the economics of climate change, including energy markets.  I am particularly interested in students who wish to undertake multidisciplinary PhD training in environmental and resource economics.  This involves acquiring substantial depth in economics, supplemented by breadth in some area of natural science relevant to your research interests.  Most of all, students should have a desire to solve important problems.

Stephen Palumbi Jane and Marshall Steel Jr. Professor in Marine Sciences, Director of the Hopkins Marine Station and Senior Fellow at the Woods Institute for the Environment

We're interested in ecological, evolutionary, and conservation questions related to marine (and sometimes terrestrial) organisms and ecosystems. We use evolutionary genetics and molecular ecology techniques, and our fieldwork takes us all around the world. Currently, we're studying coral diversity, the adaptive potential of corals in response to climate change, the movement of organisms between marine reserves, genetic changes in abalone in response to environmental.

My goal in research is to understand the interaction between environmental change and biological evolution using fossils and the sedimentary rock record. How does environmental change influence evolutionary and ecological processes? And conversely, how do evolutionary and ecological changes affect the physical environment? I work primarily on the marine fossil record over the past 550 million years.

Geomodels created from properly chosen set of geological scenario may give a better understand on how the reservoir may behave.

Currently, I am conducting experiments to visualize the impact of brine composition and salt concentration on the release of clay particles from the rock matrix.

Virginia Walbot Professor of Biology

Our current focus is on maize anther development to understand how cell fate is specified. Ultimately we want to understand how MuDR/Mu transposons of maize switch from a "cut and paste" biochemistry to a net replicative outcome late in the life cycle as cells in anther acquire pre-meiotic fate. We have discovered that frameshift translation is required to produce one form of the transposase.
