Project Description

Dr. Patrick is an assistant professor at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, a research associate at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center, and the Director of MarineGEO Texas, a node in the Smithsonian Marine Global Earth Observatory. He received his B.S. in behavior, evolution, ecology, & systematics from the University of Maryland and his Ph.D. in ecology from the University of Notre Dame. He also performed post-doctoral research on Chesapeake Bay seagrass ecology at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center and worked with the EPA Office of Water during his AAAS Science & Technology Policy Fellowship. His research program bridges freshwater and estuarine ecosystems to understand how anthropogenic stressors interact with natural environmental variation to drive spatio-temporal patterns in aquatic biodiversity and ecosystem functioning. This work both advances fundamental ecological theory and has direct applications in coastal ecosystem management and biomonitoring.
