Mr. Anisfeld’s research aims to understand human impacts on wetlands and rivers in coastal watersheds. His goal is to carry out integrated research that is both scientifically interesting and relevant to management. His current research focuses primarily on the impact of sea-level rise (along with other stressors) on salt marshes - both negative (drowning) and positive (inland migration).  He teaches courses in water resources, coastal ecology, and environmental organic chemistry.
