David M Hudson
I am a behavioral and physiological ecologist and research scientist over conservation and research programs at The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk. I am fluent in Spanish, and spent time in Bogotá, Colombia as a U.S. Student Fulbright Fellow after earning my Ph.D. from the University of Connecticut. My research uses the behavior and physiology of crustaceans and fish to determine the effects of changes in the physical environment (temperature, salinity, sound, etc.) on distributions, survival, and ecology of marine and aquatic organisms. I am also interested in how changing human behaviors impact the survival of species and affect distributions, and how aquaculture can be used to augment food security, economic security, and conservation of marine and aquatic animals.
