Professional Background:

Joe joined CFE in 2012 after 18 years at the Southeast Environmental Research Center (SERC) at Florida International University in Miami where he served as director. At SERC, he generated more than $18 million in external grants and contracts, is a founding Principal Investigator of the NSF-funded Florida Coastal Everglades LTER, and directed the Water Quality Monitoring Network for the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. His most recent NOAA grant focuses on developing research and management goals for their coastal South Florida program. He serves on 12 national and regional scientific advisory boards and has been involved in numerous proposal reviews and selection boards, including five national program reviews and multiple assessments of federal science programs.

Joe has experience in microbial ecology and biogeochemistry of coastal oceans, estuaries, rivers, and groundwater ecosystems. His interests are in both natural and human-induced physical/chemical effects on microbial communities and water quality with specific expertise in bacterial and phytoplankton nutrient cycling processes, ecosystem biogeochemistry, and long-term ecological time series. His newest line of research involves developing system-wide indicators of ecosystem restoration and the incorporation and valuation of ecosystem services into science, management, and policy thinking.
