My research explores how environmental filtering may affect the successful invasion of non-native species, using the non-native Pacific oyster (Magallana gigas) as a model species. I will use a combination of hydrodynamic modelling and manipulative experiments to explore different filtering mechanisms, with a view to inform and shape policy and management of invasive species in the future.
