Andrew David Thaler is a candidate for Ph.D. studying population structure and connectivity of deep-sea hydrothermal vent endemic invertebrates in the Western Pacific. His interest is in how isolation and gene flow affect marine populations at local and global scales. His primary focus is in the connectivity of deep-sea hydrothermal vent ecosystems and understanding how patterns of connectivity or isolation effect the ability of vent organisms to re-colonize vents after catastrophic disturbance.

He writes for the popular marine science and conservation blog Southern Fried Science and posts ocean poetry and creative writing at Hardtack and Sardines. His CV is located here.
