My labs are at the Wilkes Honors College of Florida Atlantic University on the MacArthur campus in Jupiter, Florida and at Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute, just north of Ft. Pierce, Florida.
My research revolves around the ecology, evolution, and conservation of marine and terrestrial organisms and their habitats. This allows my students and I to study diverse topics around Florida and elsewhere.
Particular areas of research include: the ecology, systematics, and evolution of deep-sea fishes; ecology of seamounts; ecology and conservation of gopher tortoises and their habitat; ecology of Florida's reptiles and amphibians, including studies of invasive species, such as northern curlytail lizards (Leiocephalus carinatus armouri), green iguanas (Iguana iguana) and hemidactyline geckos; conservation of Florida scrub habitat, including studies of the endangered perforate lichen (Cladonia perforata) and endangered fragrant prickly apple cactus (Harrisia fragrans).
