Santiago Herrera, Ph.D.

The Herrera lab seeks to understand how diversity arises in and interacts with, the ocean environment. We make use of high-throughput data-gathering techniques and computationally-intensive analytical approaches, in combination with oceanographic field expeditions and laboratory experiments, to generate and test ecological and evolutionary hypotheses using a range of non-model systems. Our research focuses on deep-sea and mesophotic benthic ecosystems, populations, species, and organisms. Our work is cross-disciplinary; we work closely with physical oceanographers, geochemists, molecular biologists, marine engineers, and natural resource managers.
