As a coral reef ecologist, Tyler Smith is interested in the dynamics of reef populations, interactions between reef organisms and how these interactions are modified by physical forcing and man. As Coordinator for Research for the US Virgin Islands Coral Reef Monitoring Program he seeks to conduct investigations and form collaborations which strengthen our understanding of the workings and fates of coral reefs both here and abroad. His current research focuses on the ecological effects of bleaching events, terrestrial input and upwelling.
