University of North Carolina Institute of Marine Sciences
Research Associate Professor

Dr. Fegley’s research focuses on shellfish biology, meiofaunal biology, barrier island ecology, and interactions among current flows, sediments, and organisms in shallow water habitats. Much of his work employs experimental field studies. He uses traditional parametric statistics (ANOVA and regression), non-linear multidimensional analyses (nMDS), and spatial statistics in his research. Dr. Fegley has worked extensively with the ecology and management of the Delewater Bay oyster fishery. In addition, how management agencies, political organizations, and resource user groups acquire and use scientific information has been a subject of interest to him.
