Prof. Lisa Levin is a marine ecologist who studies benthic ecosystems in the deep sea and shallow water. Her ongoing research examines the factors controlling benthic biodiversity and trophic structure, the time and space scales of variation in larval connectivity, and the effects of the ocean pH/carbonate system on early life stages. She has developed innovative tools to address these questions and participated in over 30 oceanographic expeditions around the world, serving as Chief Scientist on 12 of these.
