Teaching, Research/Creative & Consulting Interests
Human Anatomy & Physiology; Comparative Vertebrate Anatomy; Paleontology; Geology; Geobiology; Ichthyology
I am a vertebrate paleontologist and specifically interested in fossil fishes and the following questions:
- What animals have existed in the past and how did they get to where we find them (biogeography)?
- How have marginal environments affected evolution and distribution of terrestrial fauna?
- How have tectonic and climatic changes over time affected the radiation and distribution of taxa?
