Research Interests

  • Ecology and evolution of functional morphology in vertebrates. Mechanisms of prey capture in fishes; the functional basis of feeding performance and the evolution of feeding musculo-skeletal systems. What are the general patterns and repeating themes in how complex functional systems, such as the feeding mechanism of fishes, are modified during evolution?

Areas of Emphasis

  • Physiological Ecology, Marine Ecology


  • Evolution and Ecology
