Dr. Anderson is currently Professor of Biology and Director of the Coastal and Marine Institute and its laboratory that supports the research of more than seven faculty and over 25 graduate students, also providing hands-on research experiences for many undergraduates. The Coastal and Marine Institute Laboratory (CMIL), located in an urban environment on San Diego Bay, allows for both basic and applied research. CMIL has been in operation since 2006, supporting research, providing seminar and scientific diving training courses, and promoting research experiences for undergraduates, science education, and public outreach. Dr. Anderson continues to build infrastructure at CMIL to increase capabilities for faculty and student research. In conjunction with the Marine Biology and Ecology Student Association (MEBSA) at SDSU, CMIL provides lab tours, educational opportunities, hosts an annual open house to the public, and provides a supportive environment for research. In his limited free time, Dr. Anderson enjoys traveling, all-grain brewing of several styles of ales, and trying to become mildly proficient at playing electric guitar, with a preference for the blues.
