Expertise Profile

 Dr. Metaxas’ research interests include the larval ecology of marine benthic invertebrates, such as invasive species, factors influencing survival and dispersal including fertilization biology, dietary conditioning, food patchiness, swimming behaviour, flow and turbulence. She investigates larval production, dispersal and recruitment of invertebrates at hydrothermal vents and other deep-sea habitats. This deep sea research also involves the structure of macro- and megabenthos associated with assemblages of deep sea corals.
