Hampton Lab Home


As of August 2022, the Hampton research group is in transition to Carnegie Institution for Science in Pasadena, CA.

We investigate 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.
