"Mary O'Connor"

I went to Brown University where my mentor was Mark Bertness. As an undergraduate, I also worked with Bob Paine, Chris Harley and Mar Wonham as a technician. I did my graduate work with John Bruno at UNC-Chapel Hill, and my postdoc mentor is Steve Gaines at UCSB. I study food web ecology, marine ecology and ecological responses to climate change.
