Anna Metaxas received her PhD in Biology from Dalhousie University in 1994. She held one postdoctoral fellowship at Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institution in Fort Pierce, Florida and then another at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. She obtained an NSERC UFA and became an Associate Professor in the Department of Oceanography at Dalhousie in 1999. Her current research examines biological and physical factors that regulate larval supply and recruitment in populations of marine benthic invertebrates. She studies a wide range of habitats such as the intertidal and shallow subtidal zones, and the deep-sea, mainly hydrothermal vents, but also areas with deep-water corals.
Key words: benthic ecology, larval biology, hydrothermal vents, deep sea, invasive species
