About Me

Associate Professor

Ph.D., Arizona State University
M.S., Fisheries, Aquaculture and Pathology, University of Rhode Island
B.S., Zoology, University of Massachusetts

I have been a member of the Department of Biology faculty since 2000. In addition to Anatomy & Physiology and Evolution, I teach introductory and non-majors courses.  My research interests center on comparative structure/function questions, ranging in scale from molecules and cells up the level of the organism.  I have a particular interest in fish; for example, current ongoing projects are exploring functional anatomy of the paddlefish, Polyodon spathula.  I am also Chair of the Medical Professions Advisory Committee (MedPAC).
