  Alexandra "Ally" Dubel  (Research Technician) is interested using statistics to research a wide spectrum of topics including marine biodiversity, including how it is changing over time due to environmental change and anthropogenic causes, and the population dynamics of reef fish species. Ally has a B.A. in Theater Arts from Florida State University and a B.A. in Mathematics from George Mason University. She received an M.P.S. in Marine Conservation from University of Miami studying the invasive lionfish population in the Dry Tortugas National Park.

  Scott Miller  (PhD Student) is interested in how ecological interactions can be shaped by various natural and anthropogenic factors, and how this variation influences the resilience of ecosystems.  He has a B.S. in Biological Science from Clemson University where he studied the den sharing behavior of juvenile Caribbean spiny lobsters and an M.S. from Moss Landing Marine Laboratories where he investigated the  effects of oceanographic variability on the trophic ecology of coral reef fishes from the central Pacific.

     Jenn McHenry's  (Former Research technician) is now a Ph.D. student at Florida State University.  She uses macro-ecology, remote-sensing, and GIS to understand, map, and incorporate critical marine ecosystem dynamics into spatial fisheries management, conservation, and multi-use planning strategies. Jenn has a B.Sc. in marine sciences and a double M.Sc. in marine biology and marine policy from the University of Maine.

  Shannon Boyle  (Former Graduate student) now works for U.S. Fish and Wildlife on resource management issues in California. Shannon received a B.Sc. in Wildlife Biology at McGill University working on lake fish community dynamics and has a Masters from UCSB’s Bren School of Environmental Science and Management where she studied both ecosystem dynamics and effective public engagement strategies for large-scale marine reserves in the Pacific.
