My main research interests are in using morphological and process-based approaches to address problems in evolution and development. Among my current projects are investigations of paired fin development and origins, development and evolution of fin cartilage patterns, and developing new 3D imaging methods for comparative and developmental biology.

I teach imaging courses and seminars on scientific writing in English. I also have a long-standing interest in promoting science education and countering creationist incursions.
