Stephen’s work focuses on understanding the mechanisms that drive patterns in diversity (including impacts of human activities), how diversity impacts ecosystem functioning and ecosystem services, and how ecology can inform, motivate, and learn from management actions. In order to consider these issues across multiple scales, his lab employs and connects field, lab, and quantitative techniques in various communities.  Most of the lab’s field projects focus on understanding, restoring, and conserving coastal and aquatic communities in the Hudson River watershed (e.g., oyster reefs, salt marshes, tidal marshes, rivers), while computational work explore diversity patterns and impacts using big-data (focal areas include kelp and rain forests) and model development.  He is also interested in communicating research findings to stakeholders and finding ways to connect education and research.
