The Hampton research group investigates the complex ecological dynamics underlying spatial patterns and temporal dynamics across and within aquatic ecosystems. We frequently employ data-intensive approaches to synthesize diverse existing data across the globe. As a result, our projects have often created an engaging, interdisciplinary, and international network of collaborators. We are strong proponents of open science, and strive to adhere to its principles. We value collaboration, rigorous science, constructive criticism, and collegiality.
