Research Interests: My lab conducts studies on the diversity of fishes including systematic, conservation genetic, and ecological studies of both freshwater and marine fishes. Recent work includes systematic studies of silversides (Atherinopsidae), splitfins (Goodeidae), and darters (Etheostoma and Percina), as well as population genetic studies of many different fish species.
