Research Interests

My interests are in the diversity and distribution of North and South American fishes, both fresh and salt water species, and discovering fish diversity by the use of both morphological and molecular techniques. I am also interested in the relationship between fishes and the larval stages of freshwater mussels. I have spent my recent past absorbed in moving the Museum’s fish collection from the ledger to the web, as well as the physical curation of over 110,000 lots.
