Ocean Life Institute Fellows
Institute Fellows are selected based on their scientific leadership, their interest and ability to participate in interdisciplinary research, and their ability and willingness to communicate the importance of the Institute's research to the public and policy makers in government.
Lauren Mullineaux studies the ecology of marine benthic habitats. She is particularly interested in how the dispersal of invertebrates in their larval stage influences population dynamics and community structure. As a fellow, she will synthesize information on larval exchange and community resilience in the deep sea in order to understand the effects of natural and man-made disturbance and help guide international decision-making about deep-sea resources.
