Joel Carr is research ecologist with the coastal processes group currently examining and modeling biotic and abiotic processes controlling marsh upland boundary migration. His background is in environmental sciences and mathematics, with a focus on using modeling to investigate non-linear dynamics in ecosystems. Joel has a background in vegetation modified transport processes and much of his work focuses on examining the stability and resilience of seagrass (Zostera marina) to environmental drivers/stressors. 

Joel’s research interests are varied but tend to focus on ecogeomorphic and ecohydrologic feedbacks mechanisms and the emergence of alternate state dynamics, complex networks, human-environment interactions, the population-water-food nexus, inequality, transport processes, sediment dynamics and noise-induced phenomena among others.
