I am a crustacean biologist by training. I studied sex pheromones in Caridean shrimp, trying to identify the female sex pheromone and the male receptors. My interest in chemical communication of crustaceans intersects with my interest in anthropogenic stressors of aquatic habitats in that I am currently very interested in how urban run-off into aquatic habitats might disrupt chemical communication in an aquatic ecosystem. I hope to pursue this question here at UTC.
 
I teach Functional Human Anatomy and Human Physiology currently. My other course interests range from Invertebrate Zoology to Environmental Science.
