Areas of Specialization

Research

Robert Campbell's research interests focus on zooplankton vital rate processes, including feeding, growth, and reproduction. He combines laboratory studies and field measurements to quantify these processes and determine the role of zooplankton in planktonic ecosystems. His research spans estuarine to open ocean environments and temperate to arctic regions.
