Research Interests

Anela is a sea-going biological oceanographer with research expertise in open ocean (water-column and deep-sea) food web structure and function. Her core research focuses on how organic matter flows through and connects species and assemblages, as driven by feeding and movement. Additionally, using a suite of multi-disciplinary tools, Anela’s work interrogates the impacts of global environmental change and commercial fishing pressure on pelagic ecosystems.
