Dr.  Symon A Dworjanyn


Research Biologist

Research Description

I work in the fields of marine ecology and sustainable aquaculture. I attempt to apply the culturing skills developed in aquaculture research to explore marine ecological and evolutionary ideas and to apply ecological theory to advance the development of sustainable aquaculture practices. A current research focus is the effect of ocean acidification and warming on marine invertebrates. In this research I use ecological and evolutionary theory to predict the future impacts of marine climate change on marine invertebrates, and to identify adaptation and mitigation strategies to limit ecosystem impacts. In the area of aquaculture I focus on sustainable sea urchin and seaweed culture. Other interests include seaweed and marine invertebrate chemical ecology and desert trophic ecology.
