Project Description

Dr. Darnell is an assistant professor in the Department of Coastal Sciences at the University of Southern Mississippi. Dr. Darnell earned a B.S. in biological sciences from Vanderbilt University and a Ph.D. in ecology from Duke University. Dr. Darnell’s long-term research interests are centered on the environmental constraints imposed upon marine and estuarine invertebrate species. Specifically, his research focuses on physiological and behavioral responses to environmental change and environmental stress; environmental effects on life histories, distributions, and population dynamics; and anthropogenic impacts on organism-environment interactions. Focusing primarily on crustaceans, this research relies on a combination of field- and lab-based experimental work, complemented by quantitative and spatial analyses of long-term fishery-dependent and fishery-independent datasets to better understand patterns of abundance and distribution in relation to environmental factors over longer time scales.
