Dr. Deary is a postdoctoral researcher in Dr. Frank Hernandez’s lab at the University of Southern Mississippi, Department of Coastal Sciences. She is examining the seasonal distribution and foraging habits of larval fishes in physically dynamic nearshore environments. Alison received her PhD in Marine Science from the Virginia Institute of Marine Science, College of William and Mary in 2015. She is interested morphology and how morphological structures can influence the ecology of early life history stage fishes, particularly focusing on feeding habitats. Current projects include examining the impact of oil, dispersant, and oil-dispersant complexes seasonally on the planktonic community in river dominated, coastal habitats. She is currently working with the Consortium for Oil Spill Exposure Pathways in Coastal River-Dominated Ecosystems (CONCORDE) as part of the Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative (GOMRI).
